Dipole Aerial for Shortwave Listening

We Say

Add a bit of gain over the traditional long-wire.

They Say

This video is for those who have asked me for a good aerial design to receive Radio KBC on 6095 kHz. The aerial is designed for the 49 metre broadcast band but you can change the length to suit any shortwave broadcast or amateur band. There will be a mismatch between the coax and the aerial socket on the radio but, for our purposes, that won't present a problem. On the band the aerial is designed for, it will perform far better than a random length of wire.
