End-fed halfwave antennas are popular with portable ham radio operations, such as Field Days, public service events, and contests such as Summits On The Air (SOTA).

In this post, Andrew (VK1AD) describes a simple end-fed halfwave (EFHW) antenna and the small antenna tuning unit (ATU) that makes this portable antenna cover the 40, 20, and 15 meter bands.  Andrew supplements his text with some excellent photographs and diagrams.

If you need a portable or emergency antenna, this design from Andrew could be the project you're looking for.  Make two of these antennas--one for your QTH and the other for your vehicle.
