End Fed Half Wave Antenna -11 Bands One Antenna! Post 1902.

Great video from Steve Ellington as he shows us how to get 11 amateur bands from one end fed half wave antenna. 

The key to this fascinating antenna is the 49:1 balun and the relay box.  If you bypass the relay box, you can add 160, 60, and 6 meters to the 130-ft/29.63 m antenna element.

Although the project is a bit complex, your effort will result in an effective antenna which covers the major amateur/ham radio bands from 160 through 6 meters.
