Six Meter Folded 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=qbje13U6hC4.  This is post 2242 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Claude Jollet (VE2DPE) for this easily understood video on how to build a six meter folded dipole antenna.  Although the tutorial is quite clear, I did miss a spoken audio track.

According to Claude, materials for the project are simple and easily obtained:

"A ham radio six meter folded dipole antenna made of ladder line, fed with ladder line and matched with a step down 4:1 coaxial balun at the bottom of the transmission line. Cut to resonate at 50.4 MHz. SWR is below 1.3 between 50.0 and 51.0 MHz."
