Double Bazooka

The Double Bazooka Dipole is a very efficient single band antenna which is very quiet, and does not require the use of a balun. This antenna consists of coax (RG58) or other 50 ohm type with the shield split at the center and the feedline attached to the open ends. Do not break the center conductor. With the feedline attached directly to the two open ends this acts as a half wave dipole along with the open wire end sections. This double bazooka can be cut for any operating frequency and is broad banded. It can be mounted as a flat top or an inverted vee and will handle the legal limit. As an added plus, it can be operated as a multiband antenna by using a suitable tuner. As with most antenna projects, get the double bazooka up as high as possible. Some tuning of the length for best swr may be required and you can use materials that are easily obtainable.
