This is post 2283 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Thanks to Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) for this comprehensive look at random length end-fed antennas.
Stan does a good job of describing how to design, build, install and test end-fed random length antennas. Of particular importance is the use of a balun to match the high impedance of the wire antenna with the relatively low impedance of your HF transceiver. Also covered is the use of a ground radial or counterpoise system to improve the efficiency of this antennas.
