How to build a 40 meter Dipole Antenna (no balun)


Thanks to Steve (K5ATA) for this 40 meter dipole antenna project.  As built, the antenna is strong, weather resistant, and suitable for both home station use and field operations, such as the ARRL Field Day event.

Here are some comments from Steve (K5ATA):

Welcome to another episode of Ham Radio Basics. This episode is all about how to build that dipole antenna. I needed a dipole antenna for portable use in my POTA activations. You can build a dipole with, or without a balun. It is a good idea to wrap the coax a few times to form a choke when not using a balun. Please SUBSCRIBE and LIKE.
