Various End Fed Wire Options
The following pages are not exhausitve. They arose out of my playing with the end fed half wave antenna matched with a parallel resonant transformer described on another page. That approach is pretty much dedicated to one or two bands and requires a half wave wire for each band. So it is not really a multi-band antenna. The 51 ft and 35 ft end fed wire antennas described on the following pages are intended to be genuine multi-band antennas.
This antenna consists of a tuner or matchbox, a 51 foot antenna wire and a counterpoise which may need to be length adjusted for different bands. I don't know the "theory" behind this particular length.
This antenna is identical to the 51 foot endfed one except that the antenna wire is 35 feet long. Once again I don't know the logic behind the length. In both this and the 51 foot case I simply took other peoples ideas and adapted them to my situation.
