This is post 2444 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

If you want an easy-to-build 40 meter antenna suitable for both home and field use, you can't beat the folded dipole.  

Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) tackles this project with his usual down-to-earth enthusiasm and creativity. You won't need expensive materials or excessive time to design, build, test, and use this antenna.

Here are a few 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.
