End fed Ae

Post by 13TM001 on Thu Jul 08, 2010 7:03 am

Looking at Snowdonia Radio Coy for the 9:1 end fed HF for the holidays.

It comes with the radiator (wire) already cut.

Am I right in assuming I will need some sort of tuner to make this work on my preferred band?

Or is there a freq calculator out there? I have been looking for ages and cant find nothing.

Cheers for the help.

Ah just found Simons tape measure post.

It seems 7.6m will give you 5/8 Ae.

Thread can now be deleted, unless I have missed a trick!

Cheers.

What do you want a CB antenna, or an amateur bands antenna, optimised for performance on your "preferred band" ?
