End fed half wave for 60 meters
« on: May 27, 2017, 08:58:47 AM »
Been experimenting again with end fed half waves and methods of matching them.  Build a broadband matching transformer to use with my EFHW 60 meter antenna and its working great !  Its flat on 60 meters and close enough (2.5:1) to use with my built in ATU in my FT-450AT on 30 meters and 15 meters.  Thought I would share a diagram on the transformer.
