Building dipoles is easy! 468/f gives you the number of feet. Then  
you have to trim the antenna. It takes a bit of cut and try, but it  
isn't hard.

Of course, that's for one band. Trap dipoles are a little trickier.  
But I built a 30m/17m dipole this spring, and plan to add 12m trap  
this fall.
