Dipole antennas are simple to construct and can be used in many applications. In this video I will show you how to construct a dipole antenna for the 2.4GHz spectrum. Dipole antennas are normally ½ wave but I will show you how to build a dipole greater than a ½ wave and still keep it resonant to the 2.4GHz frequency by making use of a loading coil. These antennas are normally sold as an extended range 5dBi antenna.
