Make your own single band resonant end fed antenna by just adding approx 1/2 wave length of wire, NO TUNER/MATCHER REQUIRED, no counterpoise, EG: Cut 10 mtrs of wire for 14MHz and trim it by folding it back on itself for perfect resonance.
Moulded UV protected enclosure with stainless steel hardware, ceramic insulator, resin potted Stainless Steel strain reliefs, SO239 socket or BNC socket by request, made with the highest quality components, bargain of a lifetime and just look at that bandwidth!

1/2 wave matching box:
150 watt version £35 plus £6 UK post
250 watt version £40 plus £6 UK post
400 watt version £50 plus £8 UK post…………….(in stock)
1000 watt version £65 plus £8 UK post (in stock)
All come with thimble/ss wire lock/insulator etc, just add your wire!
Using a manual matcher/tuner will result in the antenna to be matched to other bands as it offers a near resonant match on even harmonics. EG: If a 40 mtr long wire is used (half wave on 80 mtrs) then 80/40/20/10 mtr bands and 60/30/17/12 mtr bands can be used but not guaranteed.
If a 20 mtr long wire is used then coverage will be 40 mtrs (1/2 wave), 20 mtrs (full wave) etc.
150/250/400/1000 watt versions available
HI Geoff, Many thanks, the antenna arrived on Monday. Got it up yesterday, and had a few contacts including HI3 on 40m and 9K2 on 20m. I called CQ on 40 cw this morning and VK3XU, Drew in Melbourne came back, and we had a solid QSO at 569 – both running 100W. Looks like you’ve produced another winner Geoff! Can’t wait for 10m to open! FYI, I run mine as a bottom fed sloper with the top pulled up into trees. With this aerial, the 40m section needs to be out in the clear otherwise the tree branches de-tune it. The single banders are less fussy. Best 73s – Colin G3USA
(Note: The 40 mtr section can be adjusted, with just 10 to 25mm it will move the frequency should you have slight off resonance….Geoff G4ICD)
The new 40/20/10 Resonant end fed @ 12 mtrs long has hit MEGA sales, at half the price of the big shops (and better built with Kevlar) this new antenna has produced over 200 sales since January. This is the best engineering you have ever seen!

421 Triband End Fed launched Jan 2017 which is G Whips 50th year, superb performance. During 12 hours of the CQWW contest last October (noted as poor HF conditions due to Solar Activity see PW comments) we worked over 125 DXCC Countries with ease. At 12 Mtrs long it will fit in most back yards and is fabulous for Portable use. Comes with FREE carry case as promotional offer, ptfe wire MIL spec wound Ni/Zn core or cores, kevlar lines, end support line and screw in insulator etc etc. available now. Models: 150w/250w/400w………….SO239 socket as standard, BNC/”N” Type special order.
