Making contacts on an experimental Ham Radio Antenna.


In this video, Carl (M0SZT) modifies an End-Fed Halfwave (EFHW) Antenna by adding a common mode choke to his antenna system.

Carl says "This is a great antenna!"

This modification will be helpful in SOTA/POTA operations.

Here are some comments from Carl (M0SZT):

I get out for the night in the Land Rover to try out a new portable ham radio antenna and cook a curry. Many thanks to Chris M0VUE from for gifting me the antenna I tried out on this trip. He calls it his experimental antenna which is an EFHW but with a common mode choke built in. The antenna is a prototype but well made and easy to set up, I was very pleased to make contacts on 5watts and more on 90 watts. Sometimes you get a good feeling with an antenna, when you have confidence that you can break pile ups, this has that on 20m. This explains the antenna a bit more: The second antenna is the Slidewinder coil and tripod from M1ECC antennas another fantastic UK based company making portable antenna gear. The D10 wire and antenna poe is from another UK based antenna producer Dx Commander. Locations are based around Buxton in the Peak District. 00:00 Introduction 01:00 Setting up ham radio station 08:27 Contacts! on the new antenna 11:37 Slidewinder coi antenna 15:03 Sunset and cooking
