Product Information

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.  
All stainless steel hardware used. 
The matchbox handles 300 watts of power.  Each Unun wound with Alpha 5856/7 PTFE wire.
A 41 foot insulated Poly-Stealth 18 gauge stranded wire antenna and #10 solder lug is included. 
Additional length wires can be purchased.
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.

Endfed 80-6 meter portable antenna

I just installed this antenna and i am extremely happy with the construction and performance. I went with 119 feet for the length and the performance has me blown away. On vacation with this antenna and my icom705, i have the antenna strung between the house and a tree, its about 9 feet off the ground. Running the radio at 10 watts this morning and have made contacts into europe and western sahara plus numerous stations around the US! I highly recommend this antenna and thank NI4L for the great product and ease of ordering!

Fantastic antenna! Excellent pre-sales support

I had several questions prior to ordering the antenna and Chris got back to me quickly and was very helpful. Bought the 71 foot 80m version of the antenna and am running it to a tree ~70 feet away and about 10-15 feet in the air. It's been amazing. I'm hearing places I never heard before with my attic mounted antenna. Got Italy from California on 30m and the Philipines on 10m today! In the few days I've been running it, I've made many first time DXCCs! Can't wait to see what happens when I get it mounted higher in the air. Loving the antenna. Would highly recommend it to other hams and may come back to buy some other sizes. The first day I had it, solar conditions were really good and I got heard in India on 20m from California!!! India! Blew my mind, I've never made it that far before. I've used it on 6m through 80m. Only 60m had problems tuning. Even got reception and some TX on 160m. I'm using an MFJ 939 tuner with a Yaesu FT891 pushing 100w.

Portable End Fed/80-6 Meters/Dipole Antenna/300 watts

I'm thoroughly impressed yet again. Every antenna that I have purchased from NI4L has worked flawlessly. I pulling this little short 41 foot wire antenna out of the package and immediately put it on the air activating a POTA park. I string this in whatever tree or bush that I can. Doesn't matter if it's 4 to 6 feet off the ground it performs. I'm working CW QRP and love this antenna. This is the sixth item I have purchased from NI4L and am 100% satisfied with each and every one. When you can work DX with a wire chest high off the ground QRP, nuff said.

Portable End-Fed / 80-6 Meters/ Dipole Antenna/ 300 watts

It took some time, only because I was waiting to get full clearance from my doctor to get back to doing things with no restrictions. Anyway, I finally got the antenna strung up in the attic. After firing up the rig, I decided to try FT8. Boom!!! Immediately snagged Western Australia and shortly after that Japan, from Georgia. What more can one say....awesome, to say the least!!! I'm a happy HAM!

This is a well built, quality items used to make this antenna. I am using it as a sloper with excellent results. Customer service from Chris is A+. I have purchased two additional antennas and another model from him, all with the same results.

Portable End-Fed / 80-6 Meters/ Dipole Antenna/ 300 watts

Excellent antenna. I run the 41' with no problems. My Yaesu 891 and FC-50 tuner match down to 1:1 ratio with no problems 40m -10m which was all I was interested in. I have not tried higher bands and will eventually ground the antenna to attempt 75/80. 40&20 were the bands I really wanted to work and this provides more options than that. Chris is super helpful and quick to respond. Thanks for everything.

End fed dipole

Have two. One inside 39 foot in the attic and one 71 foot in the back yard between trees. Very stealthy and well made. Good for deed restricted neighborhoods. Hardly visible and have made good contacts with both. Very pleased. Chris has been very helpful.

Works very nicely in attic

Not having easy access to the roof, I strung this int he attic. Works nicely with my tuner for 10-40 meters. Very easy to install, and am not using a ground. Tried with a ground and was better, so no need. Great quality product.

Good dipole antenna

I love it, made contacts in several us states, on 40 meters and 20 meters easy to install, so small you have to really look for it. I recommend highly best antenna I have. Larry

Easy to Install and Use

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.

Simply Great

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!
