Building a trap dipole for 7 and 14 MHz. Post 1901.

If you only want to operate on two or three bands and don't want to adjust an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), then this trapped dipole for 7 and 14 MHz may be for you.  Peter Parker (VK3YE) does an excellent job of taking us through the theory, design, construction, tuning, and use of this simple, effective antenna. Peter puts particular emphasis on getting a SWR closest to 1:1 and on designing an effective 14 MHz trap.  This project would be excellent for any "field operation", such as the ARRL Field Day, SOTA, or IOTA DX-peditions.

Building a trap dipole for 7 and 14 MHz. Post #1415.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbEAwG1KMA. A trap dipole antenna is a good choice if you only want to operate on two or three amateur radio bands and don't want to readjust an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"/"coupler").  In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us how to make a simple, inexpensive trap dipole for the 40 meter (7 MHz) and 20 meter (14 MHz) amateur radio bands.  The principles described in this video can be applied to other antenna combinations, such as 30/40 meters, 80/160 meters, and 15/20 meters.  Peter's explanation of how to build the 20 meter trap is especially well done and easy to understand.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbEAwAG1KMA. According to Peter Parker (VK3YE), "A trap dipole is a good choice if you only want operation on two or three bands and don't want to adjust an antenna coupler to change between them."  In this well-produced, easily understandable tutorial, Peter takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and use of a trap dipole for the 40 meter (7 MHz) and 20 meter (14 MHz) amateur radio bands.  Of course, you could design this antenna for other bands, such as 80/40 meters and 15/10 meters.  Other than winding some coils, the antenna is simple, effective, and fairly inexpensive.  This antenna would make a good weekend project.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Building a trap dipole for 7 and 14 MHz. Post #720.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/LbEAwAG1KMA.  A trap dipole is a good choice if you want to operate on only two or three bands and don't want to adjust an antenna transmatch (i.e. tuner/coupler) to change bands.  If you follow the instructions given by Peter Parker (VK3YE) in this well-produced video tutorial, you'll have this simple, efficient antenna working for you in short order.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
