Ham Radio: Your First HF Antenna


Do you remember your first HF antenna? 

For me, that first "cloud warmer" was a simple inverted vee cut for the 40 meter Amateur Radio band.

Since that time (43 years ago), I've moved on to several antenna designs, including beams, loops, and random wires. But I never forgot my humble inverted vee dipole.

In this video from Tim (G5TM), we see how a basic dipole antenna can be used to launch your amateur radio "career" and further your antenna knowledge.

This is post 2520 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Tim does an excellent job of explaining basic antenna theory and practice.  Why not build a new antenna today with the suggestions from this video?
