Here are some comments from Stephen:

In this video I'm going to show you how I combined the fun hobbies of Amateur Radio and 3D Printing to create a DIY Multiband Vertical Dipole antenna system. We will build, erect, tune and get on the air today - so keep watching! Thanks to my QSO's out there - KF6YIJ and KX7TL.
