The Fan Dipole – A valuable multi-band HF antenna 

It’s time to test a new antenna! The fan dipole. I was considering building a parallel dipole, but I wanted the separation between the elements to ‘hopefully’ help in increasing the bandwidth available & decreasing the tuning interactions between the elements. After reading an article over on eHam: “The Fence Fan Dipole (FFD) — A … More The Fan Dipole – A valuable multi-band HF antenna
