Ham Radio - My second HF antenna. A stealth end fed wire for 80 - 10 m...

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is Post 2130 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) for this easily-made stealth antenna which works on all amateur/ham radio bands from 80 through 10 meters.

Materials needed for the antenna project are modest:

A wide band antenna "tuner".
A 9:1 UnUn.
58 feet/17.678 meters of antenna wire.
40 feet/12.192 meters of wire for the counterpoise.

The antenna may not work well if your home has a metal roof. 

Here are some of  Kevin's observations:

"I needed a second antenna for experiments and dual monitoring. Decided to try a stealth design.
