In my minimalistic RaDAR kit, I carry a 40m half wave end fed antenna and manual tuner / coupler / impedance matcher – it’s actually all that, as simple as that. A parallel tuned circuit made of a few turns of enamelled wire wound around a tiny red coloured TO50-2 toroid and a varicap. Lightweight and the size of a matchbox, and it’s a matchbox!
I found some images I’d saved from the Internet a while back which are really excellent in showing the versatility of the end fed!
Many thanks to KC8AON for the these images!
Hope to hear you on the air some day …… 73 de Eddie ZS6BNE
