Multi-Band HF Fan Dipole Antenna Construction

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT1kSQjQIkM. This is post 2110 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. How would you like to build a multi-band HF antenna without the use of an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner")?  You can if you create what is called a "Fan Dipole Antenna." In this short video, Alex (KD0YNH) and Corey (M0ECK) take you step-by-step through the basic theory, design, construction, and testing of this versatile HF antenna. Using Alex's and Corey's simple template, you'll have an antenna that covers the 80-40-20-15 meter amateur radio bands without the use of an antenna tuner. This antenna is cheap, easy-to-build, and can be used in a variety of configurations, such as an inverted V or a sloper. ----- For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arr

Do you want a multi-band HF antenna, but don't have an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") to keep SWR low as you select your favorite band? Then, a multi-band HF "Fan Dipole Antenna" may be what you're looking for.  The antenna consists of dipoles for each band connected to a single 50 ohm coaxial cable feedline.  In this video, Cory (N0ECK) and Alex (KD0YNH) take us step-by-step in designing, building, and using this simple, effective HF antenna.  According to Alex and  Cory, this antenna will work well on 80, 40, 20, and 15 meters without an antenna "tuner".  Be sure there is separation between the dipoles to reduce signal cancellation.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://bigislandarr

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT1kSQjQIkM.  How would you like to design and build a multi-band dipole antenna that covers the 80, 40, 20, and 15 meter bands without using an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner")?  In this concise, well-produced video, Cory Klumper (N0ECK) and Alex Peterson (KD8YNH) show you how to build a simple fan dipole antenna that works on four popular HF amateur radio bands without a "tuner." A nice, simple, and inexpensive way to get four HF bands on one antenna. For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.

h If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/PT1kSQjQIkM.  Nicely done video tutorial on how to design, make, and use a multi-band HF fan dipole antenna.  Alex (KD0YNH) and Cory (N0ECK) take us through a simple step-by-step process in building this antenna.  The antenna is designed to cover the 80, 40, 20, and 15 meter amateur radio bands without an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"). With an antenna "tuner", this dipole should be able to cover additional HF bands.  A good antenna for those radio amateurs who don't have antenna "tuners" or would rather not use them.  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).
