Building A Multi-Band HF Dipole Antenna. Post 2152.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KHzsKYsZL0 Here's a simple solution for building a multi-band HF dipole antenna that doesn't require an antenna "tuner", loaded elements, or antenna traps. In this video, WD0AKX (the "Radio Ham Guy") shows us how to design, build, and test what is called a "Fan Dipole" Antenna.  If you cut the wire for each band carefully, you won't be forced to use an antenna "tuner" to bring a single wire into use on multiple HF bands. As designed, this antenna covers the 40-20-15-10-and 10 meter bands.  Although an antenna "tuner" is not needed for this antenna, you can use one to "tweak" each band if you so choose. ------------ For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these web sites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.blubrry.com/arrlaudi

Building a Multi-Band HF Dipole Antenna. Post #1642.

If you can't view the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KHzsKYsZL0. Expertly done video from Larry (WD0AKX) on how to build a multi-band HF antenna covering the 40-20-15-10, and 6 meter amateur radio bands.  This classic antenna uses a single coaxial feed line to feed separate dipoles connected to a common point.  The antenna is often called a "Fan Dipole" because the individual antenna elements are "fanned out" from a single connector.  Larry does an excellent job of taking you step-by-step through the design, construction, and tuning process. If you have only one feed line and wish multi-band operation, then the "Fan Dipole" antenna may be what you're looking for.

Most of us will recognize this antenna as the "Fan Dipole", which requires no antenna transmatch (i.e."tuner").  Fan Dipoles are easy to make, durable, portable, and just plain fun to use.  Larry does an excellent job of explaining the theory and construction practices involved in this antenna design.
