Product Description

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 EF 40-6 contains a trifilar wound, 9:1 UNUN (unbalance to unbalance) toroid 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 100 watts of power. 

A 30 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 30’. 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. 

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.

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.

  1. Easy to Install and Use

    Posted by KM5M on 23rd Apr 2014

    The NI4L end-fed 40-6m dipole antenna is just about perfect for portable operation. I support the feedpoint on a push-up painters pole on the rear of an RV trailer and drape the wire over a nearby tree branch. The Elecraft KX-3 tunes it easily on all bands and it competes favorably with a Buddistick. The antenna stores easily in a quart-size plastic ziplock bag.


  2. Simply Great

    Posted by Michael on 2nd Apr 2014

    Simply a great design. Perfect for portable and quick operation. Received on Friday, strung the wire on the inside of my second story room along wall, over shelves, and hanging from the blinds. Worked 15 countries on 10 meters QRP over the weekend in over a couple of hours and two days. Used 817nd and Z817 auto tuner. A go bag/portable must!
