Building a multi-band dipole antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQfj9879K_c.  This is post 2218 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

If you have limited space antennas on your property, why not design, build, and use a simple, multi-band antenna that performs just as well as a single-band dipole?

In this video from Bob Plank, we get a good overall introduction to multi-band dipoles and the construction tips needed to make these antennas.  Don't be afraid to experiment with various dipole configurations, ranging from horizontal to vertical.

Here are some of Bob's notes:

"I built a multiband dipole that will work 40, 20, 17, and 10 meters for ham radio. An easy project I was able to tackle in one day. Calculations for the wire lengths can be found easily online. I used a program called N2IMF antenna I downloaded from hamuniverse.com that will assist in dipole wire length."
