Building a 6 meter dipole antenna and testing the 3-D printer

3-D printers are becoming popular with radio amateurs because of the antenna accessories that can be made at modest cost.

In this video from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW), we see how a 3-D printer can simplify the design and construction of a basic 6 meter dipole antenna.  Six meters is becoming active again thanks to the evolving Cycle 25 Solar phenomenon.

Here are some comments from Kevin (KB9RLW):

Leonids meteor shower was starting up, so I needed an antenna for 6 meters. Let's make a dipole.
