EFHW-8040 Dual band End Fed Half Wave Antenna
This is an End-Fed Half-Wave (EFHW*) antenna for 80 and 40m. Unlike many END FED antennas on the market, this one does not require the Antenna Tuner to operate. It is resonant Half wave on 80m (3.5MHz) therefore also resonant on the second harmonic of 7MHz. Due 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 DX-ers
Various installations such as horizontal, vertical, as inverted V, as inverted L, zigzag etc. are possible.
