If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0WB-3UToLg. In this video, Dave Casler (KE0OG) does an excellent job of making often complex antenna theory easy to understand.  Dave takes us from simple dipole and vertical antennas to a basic overview of gain antennas, pros and cons of "traps", and how to choose the right feed line for your new antenna.  This video would make an excellent introduction to antennas for both new operators and the experienced ham who may have gotten a bit "rusty" on antenna theory and application.  Dave's presentation is clear, informative, and often entertaining.
