One of the simplest, cost effective, and efficient HF antennas you can build is the half-wavelength dipole. All you need is the correct length of wire for your band of choice, a convenient length of 50 ohm coaxial cable, two supports, and your HF rig. In this video from Johnny (W5KV), we get some valuable suggestions for making a dipole antenna that will serve the operating requirements of both newly-licensed hams as well as experienced "old timers." Johnny introduces his basic dipole project with these suggestions: "In this video, we'll discuss how to construct a dipole antenna for Amateur Radio using 50 ohm coax, a cutting board, and some simple hardware. Amateur Radio doesn't have to be an expensive hobby. 73 de W5KV. https://www.w5kv.com Category Science & Technology " -------------------

Sometimes it's good to review basic antenna theory and practice before we embark on another antenna project. What could be simpler than the "classic" HF dipole antenna? In this video from Johnny (W5KV), we learn how easy it is to design, build, test, and use a HF dipole antenna with only simple tools, some 50 ohm coaxial feed line, a cutting board, and some household wire. An effective HF dipole antenna can be inexpensive, effective, and fun to use. Johnny does an excellent job of taking us from basic antenna theory to completed antenna in only a few steps. His explanations are clear, concise, and easy to follow. This video would make an excellent club or license class presentation.
