This is post 2421 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

If you want a bit more gain and bandwidth from your HF dipole, then try this 40 meter folded dipole design from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW).

Kevin takes us step by step through the design, construction, testing, and operation of this "classic" HF antenna.

Here are some comments from Kevin:

In all the years I've been playing radio, I've never built a folded dipole. Boy have I been missing out! These are amazing performers.
