Based on the well known W3EDP design, This version incorporates the counterpoise in the 300 ohm ribbon cable. Overall length is only 67', so it can be accommodated in the smaller garden, and great for portable operations...
- Works well on 80m and 40m
- Length: 67'
- Requires ATU
- Bar Code/EAN:
- Works great
I have the ladder line end of the W3EDP hung up a tree in the back garden with the copper wire over the roof of the house and tied off at the gutter at the front, so it’s not particularly high. The internal ATU on my Kenwood TS-590s tunes the W3EDP without problems from 80m right through to 10m once I connected a 20m counterpoise wire to the balun.
I am making QSOs all over Europe and into Russia and Ukraine on 50w with good reports so very happy and it is practically invisible to the neighbours.
