Get radio active! In this video, you’re guided STEP-BY-STEP by ARRL member Rob Zielfelder, Jr., N1NUG, to build an End-Fed Half-Wave Antenna Kit!
The easy-to-build kit is great for new hams (and ALL hams) seeking a simple and effective antenna to get active in the exciting world of HF (shortwave) radio operating.
Unlike the dipole antenna, the End-Fed Half-Wave is a half-wavelength antenna with the coaxial cable for your transceiver attached at one end. It has become popular with portable operators because it’s very simple in its construction and deployment. The antenna works on 10, 15, 20, and 40 meters.
