HF Back-Yard Secret: A Budget Class Antenna System


Thanks to Peter Waters (G3OJV) for this lightweight, versatile HF antenna that can be used in limited space environments.

According to Peter, successful operations from small urban lots are possible by building and erecting a simple end fed halfwave HF antenna.  The key to success is using a 49:1 Unun to help match the high antenna impedance to the relatively low impedance of your HF transceiver.  

The addition of an antenna transmatch (i.e. antenna "tuner") will make the process a bit easier.

Peter's suggestions will help you get on the air with a minimum of stress and expense.
