simple Ham Radio Antennas--End-Fed Wire Antennas. Post #928.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=264kI-xyxXE.  End-fed antennas are simple, cheap, and adaptable for both home and portable operations. In this video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains the theory, design, operation, and limitations of this versatile HF antenna.  In most cases, end-fed wire antennas need an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") and a good rf ground such as a ground radial or counterpoise system.  With proper design, an end-fed wire can serve as an effective multiband antenna.
