|Amateur Wire Antennas
The Vibroplex PAR EndFedz® are a full length half wave dipoles, but with an important difference. The coax connector is at one end of the dipole, where it is most needed. These antennas can be mounted horizontally, vertically or as a sloper. 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 window or string it up in the attic. End insulators are supplied making suspension easy.
The UV resistant ABS plastic housing encloses an efficient matching network allowing the antenna to be fed with common 50 ohm coaxial cable. All hardware is stainless and the SO-239 connector is silver/Teflon®. The radiator material is a tough polyethylene jacketed, highly flexible #18 copper wire. One end comes with a #10 solder lug making attachment to the matchbox simple and allowing the radiator portion to be replaced if ever necessary. Please note 25 Watt QRP power rating on the EF-10/20/40 series. Lightweight (the 20 meter version is only 0.5 pounds), they are ideal for portable work. The all black construction makes them difficult to see.
Your antenna may arrive under either the Par, LNRprecision or Vibroplex label.
