Make A Great HF Antenna-Easy!

The "classic" doublet antenna is one of the easiest, most efficient antennas available to radio amateurs.

In this video from SOTA (Summits On The Air) co-founder Richard Newstead (G3CWI), we learn how to design, build, test, and use this multiband HF antenna.

Here are some comments from Richard (G3CWI):

The doublet is a very efficient and effective multi-band antenna. In this video I show just how easy it is to make one! This antenna covers 80-10m with a suitable antenna tuner. Ideally, use a tuner with a balanced input or put a suitable 1:1 balun between the antenna and an unbalanced tuner. Questions? Ask them in the commenbts below.
