Simple Ham Radio Antennas--80m sloper. Post #1010.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8EVAzMICAM. Eighty meter amateur radio antennas tend to be large, with a half wavelength dipole approximately 135-feet/41.15 meters long.  A shortened 80 meter sloper antenna may be what you need for a small urban lot or for portable operations. This video from "AmericanRadioSupplies" features an 80 meter sloper antenna designed and built by W8AMZ. This is a well-constructed, sturdy antenna that should get you on the air without much trouble.  For the most efficient operation, please have the feed point between 25 to 30-feet/7.62 to 9.14 meters above ground. The antenna slopes for 34-feet/10.36 meters away from the feed point. --------------------------------------------------- For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://big
