The original Cobra antenna designed by W4JOH can be built as an all band hf antenna covering either 160 thru 10 meters or 80 thru 10 meters and is built using standard insulated wire of about 14 gauge and fed with 450 ohm ladder line down to the shack into a tuner. It got it’s name from the S shaped configuration of it’s multi-conductor elements. It performs on it’s primary and harmonic operating frequencies as a standard ladder-line fed doublet.

The close spaced wire elements on each leg introduces two added resonant responses BELOW the antenna’s fundamental operating frequency.
