End Fed Half Wave Antenna Presentation. Post 1897.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_o0jneBEh0.

In this video from Steve Ellington, we get a thorough, in-depth introduction to the "classic" end fed half wave antenna.  Steve's video is based on a presentation he gave to the Lawrenceville, Georgia Techfest.

Steve covers the history, theory, construction, and use of this multiband HF antenna based on a 1909 design from Hans Biggerow.

I learned a lot from this video, especially the importance of grounding the transformers and transmitter to maximize current on the wire.  Perhaps you can make one of these antennas for the ARRL Field Day.
