Compact Homebrew End Fed QRP Antenna. Post #1128.

Here's one of the most compact portable antennas I've ever seen.  Nearly everything fits into a small tupperware container.  According to author KD0AES, the heart of the antenna system is  a 9:1 unun wrapped on a T106-2 toroid and a minimum of hardware to insure lightweight operation. This antenna, used with a QRP rig and a sturdy antenna "tuner", should give you hours of fun on the air.

Add this simple, inexpensive antenna to your portable "go kit" and you're set to go on HF.
