Antennas 101
Presented by Eric Webner K4FAN
This presentation is an overview of antennas commonly used in amateur practice across frequency bands from 160 meters to UHF, including ham antennas for portable, base and mobile use. This is geared towards the new ham, but useful to all hams. Primarily, I hope to answer the (BIG) question of, “Now that I’ve got my license and I bought this Super Whiz-Bang radio, how do I get this thing on the air?
Well, it depends on a lot of things. Hopefully, you will take some of the things I will teach you and come up with some ideas to set up the best antennae (yes, that’s the plural of ‘antenna’) for your hamshack, whether it is at home, in your car or at a portable location. Since this is very basic I will not dive into the mathematics, transmission line theory, grounding nor construction techniques (wait for Antennas 102).
I look forward to spending some time with you at 7:00 p.m. on March 17th.
73, Eric Webner K4FAN
