Note: This listing is for one MFJ-1982MP. 75', 3/16 100% Dacron Polyester Rope Included! FULL HF Coverage, no tuner needed on most frequencies.
No long counterpoise, radials or feedline required. Rugged weather-resistant 50-Ohm matching network.
Stainless Hardware, UV resistant materials throughout. General Description End-Fed Horizontal Wire antennas (or EFHWA) cover multiple bands without traps, stubs, or resonators. End-fed wires resonate on their 1/2-wave fundamental frequency plus all odd and even harmonics above. By adding a broad-band matching network, the wire's high impedance feed point is transformed down to 50 ohms across a wide frequency range and, in most cases, you won't need a tuner to operate. Note that the single-wire radiator may be installed using only one high center or end support, making it fast and easy to set up at home, on the road, or as a "grab-and-go" emergency antenna.More Models Available Six versions of this antenna are available, allowing you to pick the one best suited for your application. A ll MFJ-1982 models come with 132 feet of antenna wire and cover 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meters.
The MFJ-1982 resonates slightly above the 30-meter band, so a tuner is normally needed for transmitting. Also, note that there is small 6-turn inductor wound into the antenna wire about 6-feet from the matching unit. All MFJ-1984 models come with 66 feet of wire and cover 40, 30, 20, 15, and 10 meters.
Note that 17 and 12 Meters are not covered because they are not harmonically related to the shorter wire length. These ratings do not apply to long key-down power applications where the matching network could overheat. De-rate accordingly for these modes. We don't sell used or refurbished equipment.
