Fan Dipole Antenna
Here's another great HF antenna idea from Mike (M0MSN0.
In this video, we get a clear, simple explanation of how to design, build, and test a "Fan Dipole Antenna."

Here are some comments from Mike (M0MSN):
Fan Dipole : How it works. Aimed at anyone with an interest of DIY antenna building. this is a rather oversimplified explanation of how the "Fan Dipole" works. As a cut length of wire is resident at a given frequency with a impedance of 50 Ohms, If you feed RF energy to the wire at the same frequency, the wire will radiate the RF with little to no returned energy. If however you move away from that frequency the impedance of the wire changes and the cut wire becomes resistive, the RF energy being pass it will start being return to to its source, (high SWR) A Fan Dipole has multiple cut lengths of wire, resident and key frequencies and as the frequency changes so each length of wire becomes resident and the others represent high impedance and so become gated to the RF forcing the energy down the route of less resistance. I do hope you enjoy it and subscribe for more.. Many thanks Mike - M0MSN To get notified of the next upload .click that bell and subscribe..
