HyEndFed 3 band for 40, 20 and 10 meter.
Max. Power : 200 WATT PEP SSB, 35 WATT DIGITAL.
Length : 11.85 meter.
Aluminum mounting plate with galvanized clamps.
Enclosure : Polycarbonate IP67, 100% UV resistant.
SO239 Connector Teflon
All hardware Stainless steel.
Out of the box the SWR was at follows:
40m below 1:2 6.820 to 7.175
40m below 1:1,5 6.920 to 7.125
20m: Whole Band belos 1:1,2
10m below 1:2 26.950 to 28.900
If the antenna is wet, the resonance drops by about 60 kHz. At 40m it is possible to tune the antenna by shortening the wire, but since I'm particularly interested in CW I didn´t do any tuning and the first contact I made was on 10m with Argentina! (50Watts)
I am very satisfied with the quality and performance of this wire antenna!
Maar ik wil toch wel even melden dat dit bedrijf de service zeer hoog in t vaandel heeft staan. Reageren heel snel op vragen, en adviseren en helpen je waar t maar kan.
Dit maak je niet veel mee is mijn ervaring.
Ron, heel erg bedankt voor de zeer goede service.
I've been on air since 41 years and by all honesty I'm willing to tell you that this is the best antenna I've ever had for HF! I have the tri-band version (40-20-10) and it's resonant on all 3 bands, without using an ATU. Using an ATU even takes your performance down with this antenna, so leave that button alone. You don't need it! The only thing is, that you have to shorten the wire for a couple of centimeters to find the sweet spot on 40 meters, since it's been trimmed on 7.0 MHz blank (which is too low).
I've made QSO's I could formerly only dream of on all of those bands. And another thing: let's talk about the noise level. I'm using this antenna in combination with the HyEnd Line Isolator, which is an absolute MUST! It completely eliminates all RFI and next to that it brings down your noise floor with at least 2 S-points and probably more...
Stop looking for solutions and buy a HyEndFed! That's is a solution by itself...
