Simple Ham Radio Antennas--End Fed Antenna Install and QSO. Post #931.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hIT_Z-y-D0.  Nicely produced video from "CoquiSats" on how to install and use the "Hy End Fed 100 watt classic for 10-15-20-40 meter ham bands."  This antenna is produced in the Netherlands and requires two poles for effortless operation.  This end fed antenna requires no "tuner", ground radial system, or "counterpoise" wires.  Most of the matching work is done by what I assume to be a 9:1 balun at the lower end of the 1/2 wavelength antenna.  A decent antenna for those with limited space.
