Thanks to KC2IRV for this concise, easy-to-understand guide to building a "classic " fan dipole antenna. In this case, the antenna will cover both the 40 and 20 meter Amateur Radio bands without an antenna "tuner." A "tuner" will be needed if other bands, such as 80 meters, will be used.
Here are some observations from KC2IRV:
"This is just a quick video of what I have setup for a 40/20 meter antenna. This antenna has been working very well for me in spite of how close it is to the ground. In a pinch it will even load up on 80 meters with a good tuner. I use common PVC 1" plumbing Tee's for my insulators."
