6 Meter Portable Dipole - N7JFP

A list of parts needed is at 13:28 of video. This video shows how I made my 6 meter portable dipole using collapsible antennas and PVC. I used a MFJ269 to do SWR testing. To center the hex coupler nut and to keep the epoxy cement contained I used a rubber grommet around the coupler nut. A length of 51 to 52 inches per side will enable a usable SWR over the entire 6 meter band. Now if the band will just open up so I can try JT65 mode on it. 73, N7JFP

tyvm for sharing. :)

I could never find the right grommet to hold the hex coupling. So in a
pinch I wrapped it with black tape till it fit snugly. Then JB welded it.
Seemed to work good.
Antenna turned out nice. Thanks for the video. Wondr if this could be tuned
on 10m, also?

Hello great video from what i saw, like the improvements to the design. I
wasn't able to watch entire video, you may have answered this, but does the
distance between the antenna elements make a difference? Is that why the
guy you got the concept from used a smaller electrical box? Thanks! And

The 440 band is about 13 inches for a 1/2 wavelength. 6.5 inches per side.
Each side will collapse down to about 13 inches. It would work on 2m but
not 70cm. 73, N7JFP
