Making open wire feedline. Post #1635.

If you can't view the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) offers another excellent, concise antenna video for hams.  In this video, Peter shows us how to make an open wire feedline for HF antennas.  According to Peter, "open wire feedline is a cheap and low-loss feedline ideal for feeding dipoles."  Open wire feedline  "tolerates significant impedance mismatches without much loss and in conjunction with a balanced antenna coupler allows multiband operations on a single dipole." Peter offers valuable suggestions on how to build and use this type of feedline.
