This is post 2296 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Steve (K5ATA) for this good, basic introduction on how to design, build, test, and use a 40 meter dipole antenna.  A homebrew dipole antenna is easy to make and costs very little.

Here are some of Steve's comments:

Welcome to another episode of Ham Radio Basics. This episode is all about how to build that dipole antenna. I needed a dipole antenna for portable use in my POTA activations. You can build a dipole with, or without a balun. It is a good idea to wrap the coax a few times to form a choke when not using a balun.
