Central Dakota Amateur Radio Club
Dipole Antenna Construction Workshop
Took place on October 29th, 2022 - 10:00am
Bismarck State College Career Academy room 224
we had 13 people attend the workshop. Everyone was able to make a 6 meter dipole antenna and also gained the knowledge on how to make any band dipole antenna
Thank You to everyone who attended and made this a great event.
N0FAZ, N0CYK, KF0DJJ, NOMBE, KF0ETN, KE0ESG, W0GX, KC0AFB AND SPOUSE, N0TC, KV0C AND SPOUSE, AND KE0FYM
Below is a calculator to determine the lengths of the dipole and each individual length.

Antenna Length Calculator
Note: This Calcultion does take into account 0.95 velocity factor. The Actual length depends on conductor diameter and end effects. This program overestimates the length if the conductor diameter is larger than 1/20 wavelength. Length is also overestimated at very high frequencies. Use this program for estimated values, but use an SWR meter to prune to final dimensions.
