Building The MEF-1 Half-Wave End-Fed Antenna Tuner. Post #1295.

If you use end- fed or random length wire antennas, an antenna transmatch or "tuner" is necessary to gain maximum efficiency of the antenna while protecting your HF transceiver from excessive SWR.  In this video from Gil, the "Radio Prepper", we learn how to assemble the MEF-1 Half-Wave End-Fed Antenna Tuner kit from EA3GCY.  The tuner can be configured for any amateur radio band between 40 meter and 10 meters.  This tuner is strictly QRP, with the power limit set at 10 watts.
