If you want to operate several bands during the ARRL Field Day, why not build a simple, inexpensive "Fan Dipole Antenna"?

In this great, "down-to-earth" tutorial from Callum McCormick ("DX Commander"), we learn what is need to design, build, and test this dipole variant.

Here are some of Callum's comments:

"I have built so many fan dipoles, I have now forgotten most of them! And I have never found the spacing between elements too critical either. Tune the longest one first (apparently) and it'll just work. Amazing fun. Balun Myths: https://youtu.be/q_Wn9c8HwcA Easy SWR: https://youtu.be/9GK0NAVltTE HEY!
