Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #1448.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwYSS335wZw. Zepp (or Zeppelin) Antennas in their myriad forms can provide a wealth of experimental data for radio amateurs seeking to improve the performance of their antennas.  In this video, Stan (W1GV) does an excellent job of explaining the theory, design, and operating characteristics of an antenna design going back more than 80 years.  For a further experiment, try building an Extended Double Zepp antenna for some significant gain and directivity.  The EDZ is a collinear array of two 5/8 waves in phase, which can be used on small city lots for frequencies above 20 meters.  If you have the space, build an EDZ for 40 and 80 meters.  For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.arrl.org/arrl-audio-news (a weekly podcast which is updated each Friday

Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #1053.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.watch?v=TwYSS335wZw. Here's another classic amateur radio antenna you may want to try if you're in an experimental frame of mind.  This antenna is patterned after the HF antennas used on Zeppelin airships during the 1920s and 1930s. Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) does an excellent job of explaining the theory, design, construction, and use of this legacy multiband HF antenna.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #843.

If you're having difficulty in viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwYSS335wZw. One of the classic multiband HF antennas you should try is the "Zepp" or "Zeppelin" antenna, which was once used on those huge German airships of the 1920s and 1930s.  In this video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains the theory, design, and construction of this antenna.  He also compares the "Zepp" to other half-wavelength antennas, such as the half-wave dipole. A good, basic introduction to an antenna that is still used today. For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #788.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/TwYSS335wZw.  Interesting alternative explanation of the theory, design, and construction behind the "Zepp Antenna" from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV).  You may want to build one of these antennas just to see how well it works in your location.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #563.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter the following URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/TwYSS3352Zw.  An excellent tutorial on the theory, construction, and use of the popular Zepp (or Zeppline) antenna .  Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) does a good job of explaining how this half-wave antenna works.  If you have sufficient space, the Zepp will perform very well.  As Stan suggests, you can get multiband performance of this antenna by using 450 ohm ladder line or 300 ohm television twin lead to feed signals to a balun and an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").  For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, 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.
