WHAT: Making an EFHW (End Fed Half Way) HF antenna

DETAILS: This antenna, which works on 10, 15, 20, and 40 meters, has a very high impedance of around 2,500 Ohms. The kit includes the parts needed to construct a 49:1 impedance matching network, which will transform the impedance to 50 Ohms, which will suit most transceivers. These kits can be purchased from the ARRL for $79.95. I have tried to match the quality of these parts individually to create out own kits, but I can not beat this price. If needed, it can also be purchased from HF Kits which makes the kit for ARRL. HF Kits are located overseas, but the price is still the same.

PURCHASING LINK: The antenna parts can be purchased from the ARRL herePlease note, the necessary parts must be procured by you in advance of the training.
