End Fed QRP Antenna kd9equ on 7/8/21
I know Im late to the party here but wanted to explain why this antenna wasnt working.
He was using a half-wave wire with a 9:1 matcher. A half-wave wire will have an impedence of 2k to 3k ohms. A 9:1 matcher is looking forvan impedance of about 450 ohms. Try a length NOT a half-wave on the bands you want to work.
