Simple Ham Radio Antennas--HyEndFed 5 Band HF Antenna Installation. Post #513.


If you have trouble viewing this video, please insert this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/kGyAveQsf6O.  Excellent antenna installation video from Ontario, Canada, amateur radio operator Tracy (VE3TWM).  Tracy discusses and demonstrates how to install the "HyEndFed 5 Band HF Antenna."  This end-fed multi-band antenna is 75 feet/22.86 meters long and apparently doesn't require a radial ground system.  I guess I'm "old school".  I prefer having a good radial or counterpoise system with any end-fed antenna system.  None the less, Tracy's antenna system seems to work very well and puts almost no strain on his transceivers.  If you have limited real estate, you may want to consider this antenna.
