Best HF Antenna: The Monopole Dipole

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post 2547 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Lucien (DH7LM) for this exceptionally well-presented tutorial on one of the best HF antennas available to radio amateurs--the monoband HF dipole. This antenna is simple, inexpensive, and suitable for both at home operation and in "field" activities. Here are some general remarks from Lucien: Overtime, I came to realize how important radiation patterns are - and how the classic monoband dipole shines here. Especially if you are a beginning ham radio operator, give it a shot before you try complicated designs! ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
