10/20 EndFed antenna wire – Wire of your choice
Do you have an EndFed antenna in a different version, but you also want to experiment with other wire lengths? HF Kits now offers EndFed antenna wire sets. The 10/20 EndFed antenna wire set has a total length of about 10 meters. The EndFed wire set is very easy to apply given the limited length and because it does not contain a coil.
This 10/20 EndFed antenna wire set comes with antenna litze of your choice:
Experimental Wire: This wire consists of 1.0 mm2 braided copper wire with a UV resistant black shield. The total diameter is about 2 mm. Perfect for experiments or holiday antennas. Because the core only consists of copper, this wire will stretch over time and continue to stretch. The tensile strength of this wire is therefore also limited.
Copper/Kevlar Wire: This antenna wire is produced especially for HF Kits local in the Netherlands. The wire consists of a Kevlar core with around 1.1 mm2 tinned copper braiding. 1x 0,4 mm Kevlar en 24x 0,25 mm copper. The insulator consists of black UV resistant PE. The total diameter is about 2.5 mm. Tension force approx. 50 kg. In this way a strong, flexible and relatively light wire is obtained.
Copper/Stainless steel Wire: This antenna Wire is produced especially for HF Kits local in the Netherlands. The wire consists of a stainless steel core (7x 0, 35mm) with around 1.0 mm2 tinned copper braid. 7x 0.3 mm stainless steel and 14x 0.3 mm thinned copper. The insulator consists of black UV resistant PE. The total diameter is about 2.5 mm. Tension force approx. 100 kg. This is a robust antenna wire with a very long life span. As far as we are concerned, this is the best choice for permanently placed antennas.
This 10/20 EndFed antenna wire set includes:
- 10.5 meter antenna wire of your choice
- 1x End Isolator
- 2x Stainless Steel Cable Clamp
- 1x Cable lug 5mm
- 1x Heat shrink sleeve for cable lug
- As much as possible, Hang the antenna free from interfering elements
- This antenna can also be used as a sloper.
- In case of common mode issues, use a common mode choke. Do not place this choke directly at the feed point of the antenna.
