Simple Ham Radio Antennas--N4LQ End Fed Wire Antenna. Post #431.


Here's another antenna idea from Steve Ellington (N4LQ). This time, Steve uses a modified end fed wire antenna, measuring 50 feet (15.24 meters) vertically and 150 feet (45.73 meters) horizontally. This antenna requires a good ground radial system to work properly. These random, end fed wires can be used successfully if an adequate ground is used in conjunction with an antenna tuner (antenna transmatch).
