Cubical Quad Antennas. Post #1551.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrVgcxVqwng. A basic, no frills explanation of the theory, construction, and use of cubical quad antennas from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  Although cubical quads can be built for the HF Amateur Radio bands, most radio amateurs seem to prefer such antennas for the VHF/UHF bands where the dimensions, materials, build time are less than similar antennas for HF.  Dave does an excellent job of introducing this versatile antenna and shows you how to build one for your home shack.  If you need an antenna for serious VHF/UHF DX or to just reach a fringe repeater site in your area, then the cubical quad may be the best antenna for you.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrvgcxVqwng. Another excellent video tutorial from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  In this video, Dave reviews the basics of building HF/VHF cubical quad antennas. His presentation is clear, concise, and helpful. Dave does a good job of explaining the theory, construction, and operation of cubical quad antennas in a variety of operating environments. He also reviews the formulas used in calculating dimensions and spacings between elements.  Although cubical quads have been used extensively on the VHF/UHF amateur radio bands, they can also be found on some of the HF bands, including, 20, 15, 10, and 6 meters.  On lower HF bands (i.e. 40, 80, and 160 meters), quads tend to be quite large and bit unwieldy.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Cubical Quad Antennas. Post #624.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this address into your browser search box: https//youtu.be/BrVgcxVqwng. In this well-produced and easy to follow video tutorial, Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) discusses the theory, design, building, and the use of cubical quad antennas for both HF and VHF amateur radio bands .  Cubical quads provide a substantial amount of gain and directivity , important considerations for DX chasers.  Cubical quads are fairly easy to make for VHF and UHF frequencies.  Most of us can probably handle a quad for 10 meters as well.  Cubical quads for 20 meters can present some construction issues, so extra care must be used to build these antennas for durability and strength.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Ru
