This is post 2629 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Peter of UK's Waters and Stanton Ham Radio Store for this informative and helpful tutorial on portable antennas.

The end-fed half wave HF antenna is the star of this presentation.  If the antenna is properly designed and built, you'll have an inexpensive, effective antenna system for your next portable or field antenna.

This design will render good service in the upcoming ARRL Field Day.

Here are some comments from Peter:

ome antennas are more suitable than others. To have fun with HF QRP you need to stack the odds in your favour! LOW COST END FED HALF-WAVE MATCHING TRANSFORMER. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PHyg...
