Build Class: Dipole Antenna for FM Transmission

The dipole antenna is one of the simplest yet effective antenna designs for radio frequency transmission. This hands-on workshop will cover the basic principles of antenna building. We will be using standard connectors, so no soldering or welding is required!

Participants will be guided through the step-by-step process of building a dipole antenna suitable for FM transmission. From selecting appropriate materials to the final assembly, every aspect of the construction process will be thoroughly explained. Special attention will be given to optimizing the antenna's dimensions for optimal performance in the FM frequency range.

By the end of the class, participants will have constructed their dipole antenna ready for FM transmission.

Why build a Dipole Antenna?

  • Eliminate the buzz & hum from stock antennas
  • Increases range
  • Reduce static & drops
  • FM Transmitter can be mounted separately from the antenna
  • Antenna can be mounted in more locations (inside, outside, roof, chimney, attic, etc.)
  • Improve Sound QualityThere is an in-depth video – Optimizing Your Audio and FM Transmission, by Jason Rasmussen, presented at the 2021 Virtual Christmas Summit.
