How to model and build your own Fan Dipole for HF

Here's another great, inspirational tutorial from the "DX Commander" (Callum-M0MCX).  If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post 2246 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

The classic "Fan Dipole" antenna is simple, inexpensive, and fun to build.  Callum describes how to build and configure this versatile antenna for your ham station.

Here are some of Callum's observations:

"Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy. Buying wire antennas is such a waste of time when you can easily achieve remarkable results with a fan dipole. You can go inverted V or flat top, have as many bands as you want, there's no restriction. I discuss the problem getting 40m and 15m working together and explain why there is no limit to the number of dipoles you can build off one feedpoint. And of course, you can also build a "maypole" style as well, I show you how. Enjoy. Callum, M0MCX.
