EGA40LV - End Fed Antenna for 40/20/10m Light-Version (17/12m with ATU)
The EGA40LV antenna is an easy to handle end-fed antenna for QRP usage. The "LV" (Light-Version") is optimized for trail-friendly
weight. This antenna covers 5 bands, from 40m to 10m, without the need for a tuner on 40/20/10m. (For 17/12m an ATU is
often required, depending on influences). Many small QRP Transceiver don't have an antenna tuner build in. In this case the
EGA40LV antenna is a perfect match and the handling is straight-forward.
Due to the trail-friendly buildup the "LV" model is not rainproof but optimzed for SOTA, WWFF, Camping, Hiking, Trekking. The
perfect antenna for operating a temporary covered or stealth ham radio station in your backyard or attic.
Radials are not necessary. With careful tuning the maximum efficency and absolute minimum feedline radiation is achievable.
With proper mounting no antenna tuner is required or should be used. However, if necessary an antenna tuner can match this
antenne if it is not well-adjusted or mounted in less than perfect environment.
