The 10 Minute Dipole.

Do you need a cheap, easily erected, and effective dipole for emergency or portable use?  This video from Scott (W4PA) of Ten-Tec has all the information you need to build a simple, inexpensive dipole that will get you on the air.  It’s just a matter of “cut, solder, and tie it off.”  I built one of these antennas after Tropical Storm Iselle leveled my “antenna farm” at my new QTH in the Orchidland Estates area of the Puna District.  The antenna isn’t fancy, but it works.  I found all of the materials in my garage.
