This is post 2542 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
In this video, Callum McCormick (M0MCX) explains why balanced feeders are sometimes superior to coax-fed HF antennas. Balanced feed line, used with a wide-range balanced antenna "tuner", can make a simple dipole antenna serve several amateur radio bands.
Here are some of Callum's observations:
I got asked yesterday about Balanced Feeder so I thought I'd give you a quick check on my experience and how to use it. You will of course need a proper Balanced Tuner. Oh, and while I'm at it.. try not to tune your coax too hard. Coax hates high SWR :) Callum.
Thanks for joining us today.
