EFHW 1500W capable transformer MEF-330-HP

It has been a long search for suitable materials and quite a few experimenting has been done to design a high ratio (~50:1) transformer for EFHW antennas capable of high power (1500W ICAS). In the same time,  it was hard to cover the wide range of HF spectrum from  3-30Mhz, yet I did it again!

I am proud to announce that new transformer MEF-330-HP is almost double in size of  its little brother  MEF-330-1K and also has a bit less insertion loss on all frequencies between 3 and 30MHz. A new transformer will be incorporated into new/old  EFHW antenna models EFHW-8010-HP and EFHW-4010-HP as well it will be sold separately for those who want to make their antennas for use out of HAM frequencies for their needs such as MARS, Marine or EMCOM activities.

New models can be seen at these links EFHW-8010-HP and EFHW-4010-HP

Also, see this short video of testing the antenna with a new transformer at 1500W.
