Product Description

The pictures show it being tested with a 39 foot piece of poly stealth 18 LAYING ON THE GROUND!
 
 
End-fed HF antenna matchbox that is quick and easy to setup and use.
 
The end-fed feature adds convenience, and makes it very portable. Small enough to fit in your glove box or your bug-out bag.
 
 
The UV resistant ABS plastic housing encloses an efficient matching network allowing the antenna to be fed with common 50 ohm coaxial cable on the SO-239 connection. 
 
The PEF 160-10 contains a FT-240/61 trifilar wound, 9:1 UNUN (unbalance to unbalance) torrid matching transformer that will match the high input impedance of an end fed antenna into the range where most antenna tuners can produce good performance. 
 
The matchbox handles 500 to 1000 watts of power PEP into a matched load. 30% duty cycle.
 
A 39 foot insulated Poly-Stealth 18 gauge stranded wire antenna and #10 solder lug is included. 
 
Poly-StealthTM high-strength antenna wire is made with high-strength, high-conductivity, bare copper-clad steel (BCCS) wire and insulated with a high-quality, UV-resistant polyethylene jacket to provide you with one of the strongest and longest lasting antenna wires on the market today.
 
Poly-StealthTM wire is perfect for situations that require antennas be hidden from view. The insulation has a low-Gloss finish, and their small size makes wire disappear into the background. That doesn't mean, however, that the wire isn't rugged. The insulation has superior abrasion resistance for running through trees and is UV and weather resistant for use on the seacoast or in other harsh environments.They'll stand up to acid rain, high wind loads, and high snow and ice loads.
 
Experience has shown that most external tuners and many internal tuners will tune 80–6 meters with an antenna length of 22’ to 39. If a longer antenna is desired, the provided antenna can be lengthened.

Do not place a balun in the coax line. Doing so will interfere with antenna performance. 
 
The end fed antenna works well in horizontal, sloper, and vertical configurations. No ground plane or counterpoise is needed. (Grounding recommended for ESD protection)
 
Portable operation could not be easier. Simply hang the far end from a tree limb–the coax is at the bottom. Hang it up in a hotel balcony or string it up in the attic. End insulators are supplied making suspension easy.
 
***Remember this enclosure that the PEF is housed in, IS NOT water proof. So if you leave it outside and it rains it will fill with water. You can drill a small 1/8 inch hole if needed. but remember it has a core wrapped with wire inside, and you have to limit the depth you drill into the enclosure or you will damage the core.***
 
Makes a great SWL antenna also.  
 
Completely ready to go, screw in your coax and your on the air.
 
Remember stay away from power lines.
