Presenter: Stephen Kercel, AA4AK Stephen recounts his experiences constructing and operating with an extended double Zepp on 80 meters. It uses 600-Ohm ladder line of a preceise length to producer a low 50� SWR without the need of a tuner. With a tuner, the antenna is so remarkably effective on 160 and 60 meters. Stephen also shares some practical insights using a potato cannon for raising antenna wires in dense woods.
