Did this video help you?

ranjith kandy: Red wire is 4mm gauge?

Skylar McDermott: KM4ZCC what does the "1 delta Kansas" stand for

Aleneski Kalashnikova: Another great idea.

Anthony Duffy: Great videos, love the no nonsense approach..Thanks and 73's

David Eisenberger: David excellent video! Thank you for taking the time and your patience to go in depth. It is appreciated! I do have one question for you. Since your not using a Choke Balun or 1:1 device, how are you keeping Common Mode Currents off your feedline?tnx es 73's de K8KEM (also a david)

Rob Losie: Wonderful video! I've been a ham since I was 16yrs and were now 57yrs. Made many dipole and inverted-V antennas but sure had all my question answered here. Wish I had this video back in the day. Going to blame you for having me out in the garage this weekend. Thanks so much for sharing.  Rob Mn.

Alan Hughes: i use to build antenna,s in the army we used stainless steel cable ,any advantage using copper wire , stainless can be pulled up tight and lasts a lifetime.

Musa Anderson: Nice and useful video Dave...

Greg Newberry: nice vid. thanks Dave for taking the time and having the patience to show newbies like me how to go about this procedure. Excellent work.

anthony zelina: what is that old telephone rotary sound??? like dialing ?

Rob Fern: Dave,

got a link or part number where I can get those butt end connectors? Thanks!

glen wells: you don't need more pockets you need a couple of boy scouts that are working on a merit badge to help you. just got my first HF today will make one of these within a couple of days. thanx for the vids

Seth B: This is exactly what I put over the top of my house, when I bought my linear amp. Now I can run 1200 watts SSB. It will do the legal limit, but I am not looking forward to the day, when I need to retube & settle for Chinese tubes.

David R: Nice video was that a Hustler 5 band vertical that i saw in the garden?

Jon Unwin: Great video Dave very informative I'm going to build my own antenna in the next couple of weeks using your advice. best 73s from across the pond

Arnold Ruiz: Great Vid Dave, I learned something.. I want to build your 40M dipole but want to mount it on a roof top in NYC. Do you think it will work ok?? Thanks again for the vid... Awesome... N2YDC

Aleneski Kalashnikova: Very nice build. Great!

revo adan: Dave was that a 1:1 or 4:1 balun?

Steve Tomlinson: Dave, Trying to get an NVIS ant. built for 40M. It will be 20' tall, and 8' at the end supports. 12 ga. stranded wire. I used RG58/U From the feed point, and included an rf choke at the feed point(used the rg58/U for that. The rest of the coax is RG8/U. The freq we are operating in is 7.240-7.290. Used 68' for length Inv V@(7.2). SWR was 3.2@7.0 /5.0@7.3. Made 3 cuts totaling 15", Now 1.5@7.0 /3.5@7.3. Can't believe I have to cut this much @ still 3.5 SWR@ 7.3. I'm setup on the side of a slope, and don't know if this is affecting the SWR. Any ideas??

Denis Carnochan: Thank you Dave. I live in a remote part of Alberta, Canada and there are no operators within hundreds of miles. I got my full spectrum licence a few years ago but getting up on the air has been very slow and often frustrating. The course may give you a licence but it sure doesn't explain how to set up and operate. Antennas have been my biggest frustration. I am not finished your videos yet but I have learned more in a few hours than all the technical reading in two years. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest. I must say that I know your passing information during the contest but I have no idea what you are saying. Perhaps another video for those new to the hobby. Again, Thanks. Denis VA6DBC
