This is post 2455 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Michael Martens (KB9VBR) for this exceptionally clear discussion of the Off Center Fed Dipole Antenna.  If you follow Michael's suggestions, you'll have an effective, efficient HF antenna for your home station.

Don't forget to include a 4:1 balun and a wide-range antenna "tuner."

Michael made this antenna for the 2020 ARRL Field Day event.

Here are some general comments from Michael:

I build an 80 meter off center fed dipole antenna for this year's ARRL Field Day Event.
