EFHW-7510-2K-Plus, 2000W Multi-Band End Fed Half Wave Antenna
Improved version of the EFHW-7510-2K, now with three large cores, 2.9-inch diameter, featuring just 0.5 dB Insertion loss 3-30MHz!
This is an End-Fed Half-Wave (EFHW*) antenna for 75/40/30/20/17/15/12 and 10m bands. Unlike many END FED antennas on the market, this one does not require the Antenna Tuner to operate. Due to the High Impedance feed point, the antenna is less height-dependent. You can put it up at 10 or 50 feet in the air without much change in VSWR values.
*This is perfect antenna for ALE HF-link stations, NVIS, MARS, ARES, EMCOMM etc.
Various installations such as horizontal, vertical, inverted V, inverted L, etc. are possible. Your VSWR values could vary with different wire configurations and the height of installation.
- NO TUNER needed!
- NO counterpoise needed! (Grounding recommended*)
- Frequency coverage: 3.5-30MHz
- Resonant on 75/40/30/20/17/15/12/10m
- Wire length ~130 feet
- Power Handling: 2kW I.C.A.S
- 350W digital modes continuous (FT8, RTTY, etc)
- Stainless Steel hardware
- Stealth #14 AWG XLPE black wire

*Grounding at the transformer box or end of the coaxial cable is recommended for protection of your equipment from an electrostatic buildup in order to prevent ESD- electrostatic discharge.
NOTE: grounding does not affect antenna tuning. If the transformer box is installed high above the ground , there is no need to route the ground wire from the box, instead just ground the coaxial cable at the entrance to your home or at the station.
