This 40 and 80 meter inverted V antenna is made with loading coils. It is a full size antenna on 40 meters and a shortened 80 meter antenna. The antenna is resonate on both bands and does not require an antenna tuner. It’s a great HF antenna for the ham radio operator with a smaller backyard!
The goal in this video is to focus on construction rather than theory and to help the antenna builder with their first set of loading coils. Also in this video I am converting the 40 meter inverted V antenna that I built in a previous video. How to make the feed-point connector is also explained in another video
