Ham Radio: 40 Metre Dipole in a small space.


 

Thanks to Tim (G5TM) for this clever way of squeezing a 40 meter dipole antenna into a small urban garden.

Although the antenna is not full-sized, it performs almost as well as a full-length horizontal dipole.

Antennas of this type are useful for those radio amateurs living in deed-restricted homes or on small city lots.

Thanks for joining us today.
