New offering from LNR Precision

This appeared on their Facebook page today:

This is the EFT-10/20/40, which is a “Trail Friendly” version of their popular EF-10/20/40MKII antenna.  The one shown above comes in at a weight of 3.5 ounces.  The EF-10/20/40MKII, which I have, is already no burden to carry. But if you’re one of those guys who are into serious hiking (can you say Appalachian Trail?), where every quarter of an ounce makes a huge difference, then you may want to look into this baby.

I love my EF-10/20/40MKII.  I tuned it so that I don’t need to use the KX3’s autotuner. It didn’t take long and only needed a minor adjustment – it was THAT close right out of the package.  Using one of these is simplicity in itself – get one end up in a tree, hook the other end to the radio and go to town! And you make contacts – plenty of them.

    I use LNR single band EFHW antennas regularly; most of the time, actually! You can use them as a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. They are easy to deploy and do a good job. This ‘trail friendly’ model will be very good for hikers.

    Hey Larry,
    Those are so easy to make and I made one that has a 6 position switch.
    When Dale send me one of his antennas I had that box X rayed.
    Nothing inside but a core but just add a small tuning poly cap and you can get a flat 0 SWR on any band.
    I also made changes to the Hendricks end fed tuner but an end fed for 80 meters is long:-)
    But it worked very well

    HEre are plans for a 20 meter and a 40 meter end-fed – no tuner needed. There is also a plan for a 6-40 end-fed but a tuner is needed.

    The club that has this posted sells them premade also as a fund raiser.
