Let's model short or compact 20m dipole with MMANA

Another way to reduce the size of a dipole antenna is to use loading coils for your chosen frequency.  

In this video from Callum McCormick (M0MCX), we get a good introduction to loading coils, how to design them, and how to calculate inductance for the coils.

This is post 2776 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Here are some comments from Callum:

Brief discussion about loading coils, how to model them, how to use an inductance calculator and discuss narrowing your SWR bandwidth due to too high an Inductance. Here's the link: http://www.66pacific.com/calculators/.... Cheers, Callum.
Thanks for joining us today.
