40 m Dipole Length Calculator

This tool calculates the physical dimensions of a 40 meter dipole antenna.

40 m refers to the wavelength of the transmitted and/or received signal.

Using the calculator below at 40 meters,

  • The dipole length (L) is 62.4 feet
  • The length of each element of the dipole (l) is half of that at 31.2 feet.




The total length (L) of the dipole antenna is calculated as:

L = 468 / f

where f is the frequency in MHz.

f is calculated from the wavelength. For 40m the frequency is 7.5 MHz.

The length of each arm of the dipole

l = L/2
