This is post 2391 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
In this video, Johnny (W5KV--"Signal Search") begins a new set of programs comparing a variety of amateur/ham radio antenns.
The first program features a "battle" between a slopping dipole antenna and a ground-mounted Hustler 6BTV vertical antenna.
Both antennas work as designed with the vertical requiring a good radial or counterpoise system to attain maximum efficiency.
Johnny does a good job of showing both the advantages and disadvantages of these popular HF antennas.
Here are a few comments from Johnny:
Comparing a 40m sloping dipole against a Hustler 6BTV ground mount vertical antenna. This is the beginning of a new series of videos titled 'Antenna Battle Series!' Episode #1. If you have any ideas for antenna comparisons (20/30/40m) please shoot me an email!
Thanks for joining us today.
