Efficient 49:1 transformer using. 4mm aluminium mounting plate with 48mm clamp (heavy galvanised).Resonant on 80m, 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m bands (30m with atu). Full half wave on 80m band.
Dark grey coated copper wire for stealth installation. Multi-band end-fed antenna with mounting bracket 80/40/20/17/15/12/10m. Rated 5 out of 5. Great piece of Kit 73s DE Craig (2E0YIT).Bought one of these multi endfeds a week ago and managed to put it up at weekend. The parts used on the antenna are grade one I couldnt off sorted better material myself. Well presented and a little info leaflet to help with your mounting (colour and glossy paper). Anyway mounted the antenna as a u in shape due to space.
Turned the rig on and checked the swr amazing 1.3 on 80m straight through to 10m. No need to even use my internal tuner. Absolutely brilliant end-fed antenna, the build quality is superb and customer service is top notch, Ian is an absolute gentleman to deal with. If you want a very good wire antenna for 40m/80m then this is the one to get. Bought one of these thinking it would fit in the space I had, it wouldnt.Got in touch with Ian (top man with the advice and speedy replies) asking if it was easy enough to shorten for the 40 20 15 & 10m version, after being told to cut it back so I had about 20m plus not forgetting some for the fold over the insulator, then trim it to tune for 40m. I thought Id play it safe (just in case) and allowed 600mm for the foldback, erected as an inverted L I was rather pleased with no trimming at all, no tuning Ihave 40 20 15 and 10m, and with a little tuning, 30 17 and 12m for free. Lost 80m and gained 17m. Bought one of these thinking I wonder why these are cheaper than the rest but went along with it. When Ian advertises them saying theres no ATU required he is spot on. I tested each band with the analyzser and not one was above 1:1.3 so fired it up and , well the proof of the pudding is in the eating. I would highly recommend these antennas to anyone as Ian has obviously done his homeworkWELL DONE IAN.
Excellent antenna, I have the 80-10mtr efhw, I have mine in a inverted v type configuration about 45ft in the centre where the maximum radiation occurs. So easy to install mine is fed about 8ft from the ground straight down to a earth rod, these antennas are half wave just the same has a centre fed antenna but fed at the end. I have made great contacts into G on 80mts, 40mts absolutely brilliant, USA, Brazil, Australia and Japan even at the low skip cycle we are in at the moment.
All over higher bands have excellent higher gain too. 10/10 for me , Mark 2e1gdm Nottingham, UK.
