Description

EFHW-8010-2K-Plus, 2000W Multi-Band End Fed Half Wave Antenna

Improved version of the EFHW-8010-2K, 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 80/40/30/20/17/15/12 and 10m bands. Unlike many END FED antennas on the market, this one does not require the Antenna Tuner to operate. It is a resonant Half wave on 80m (3.5MHz) therefore also resonant on second, third, and fourth harmonics, etc.  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. Measured VSWR in the gallery are taken with the antenna in an inverted V shape with the center of wire at 20 feet and ends a few feet above the ground, your values could vary with the way and height of installation.

  • NO TUNER needed!
  • NO counterpoise needed! (Grounding recommended*)
  • Frequency coverage: 3.5-30MHz
  • Resonant on 80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10m
  • Wire length ~130 feet
  • Power Handling: 2kW I.C.A.S
  • Digital mode (FT8) 350W continuous
  • Stainless Steel hardware
  • Stealth #14 AWG XLPE black wire
  • Connector: Silver/Teflon SO-239
  • The 2K-Plus model has three large stacked cores

*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.

    I purchased a Kenwood TS-590SG in January. I needed an antenna to work it with until spring, when I can set up my Butternut HF9V vertical.
    After reading some reviews I bought the 8010 2k-plus with no regrets, my other choice was out of stock.
    What a great antenna!!!
    The feed point is up 18′ the wire runs 115′ to a northeast tree about 40′ up with the remaining wire pointing to the ground, making a stubby “L”. Today I made contacts in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Dominician Republic, US Virgin Islands and Italy on 15m during a DX contes running 100 watts. Using only the internal tuner as needed, and it wasn’t needed much. SWR was better than expected. Looking forward to using both antennas this summer!
    Great Product!!
