How To Make A Dipole Antenna For Ham Radio. Post #1607.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=375b_ZXDc6o. A nicely done video tutorial from a 16-year-old newly licensed radio amateur who hopes his love for antennas will inspire us to experiment on our own and have some fun at the same time. "The Modern Adventurer" discusses dipoles and their variants, including the flat-top horizontal dipole, the inverted V, and the vertical dipole--all capable of delivering contacts with a minimum of materials and stress. Dipoles are basic, simple antennas that most anyone can design, build, and use.  "The Modern Adventurer" does a fairly good job of explaining how these classic antennas work and how they can be modified to fit your operating environment.  I enjoyed the enthusiasm displayed in this video.
