This is post 2314 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

This is one of the best explanations of the theory and practice of end-fed antennas I've found on the internet--clear, concise, accurate. and no hype.

Here are some general comments from the "RadioPreppers.com" website:

Hoping to clear up some confusion on end-fed wires, half-wave or random and the impedance transformers used with them. You also get a free rant on contests and a quick glimpse of my new Elecraft K1. Check out the Half-Wave End-Fed antenna group on Facebook, by Steve Ellington. Formulas for half-wave wire calculations are 143/f in MHz for meters and 468/f for feet. Feedback would be appreciated especially to correct any mistakes I may have made in my analysis. Version Française en cours d'édition... EARCHI 9:1 UNUN: http://www.earchi.org/92011endfedfile...
