Re: Long wire end fed

I have an end-fed cut to 40m with an added inductor with about 2M of extra whip. It detuned the other bands, requiring some tweaking. It now tunes 80, but the bandwidth is narrow (as you would expect) and the performance is so-so. My 105' random wire 9:1 is outperforming it so far. Granted, the long wire is mounted higher. 

I recommend that you try it. 70 feet is often easier to find than 105 ft.
