Build this Vertical Portable HF Antenna

The Asymmetrical Hatted Vertical Dipole (AHVD) prototype is an easy to build, portable alternative to other freestanding vertical HF antennas such as the Buddipole.

Asy Hat Vertical Dipole

Three views showing a how a planed vertical need not always be the classic 1/4 wave monopole.

We re-introduce the theory and origins of Cebik’s (W4RNL) Asymmetrical Hatted Vertical Dipole (AHVD) antenna with the hope to facilitate a vertical polarization portable 20-10m aerial for portable operations.

Wideband 80m Dipole

Series Transmission Line Resonator for broadband dipole.

A 1/4 wavelength of 75 ohm coax inline with a full wavelength of 50 ohm coax is all one needs to make a simple 80m dipole become a wideband dipole antenna.
