Easiest DIY Antenna for HF.


If you need a quick, efficient, and inexpensive antenna for the 30 meter or any other ham band, please consider this ultra simple dipole from Anthony Gettig (N8VOX).

Anthony takes us through the entire construction procedure in steps that are easy to follow.  The project is so simple that you could build a dipole for any ham band you want.

Here are some comments from Anthony (N8VOX):

The dipole is the EASIEST antenna to build for HF ham radio! I made mine specifically for 30m, but you can make it one for ANY band! All you need is the coax (I get mine from Cable Experts at hamfests, but they're online too), some wire (I used 14 gauge speaker wire), and if you want to get fancy, a 1:1 balun like I use in the video. But really, if you want to skip the balun, you can just connect the center conductor of the coax to one wire and the jacket of the coax to the other and string that baby in the air! Just remember, YOU assume all risk if you try this at home. YMMV. :) Here are links for the items used in this video: Not the exact wire, but something close!
