Dave (W7AQK) and Michael,
I’d be interested in any info you care to share about end fed half wave antennas you’ve had experience with, Dave, including the tuner and deployment of the actual antenna, counterpoise, etc. Like Michael I’m playing with the idea of taking a QRP setup with me on a hike in Glacier National Park and have been trying different antennas in my back yard. I describe in some detail what I’ve tried and my experiences so far on my web pages starting at http://www.huyettm.net/portable-antennas.html. The two rigs I am contemplating are my Yaesu FT817nd and a TenTec R4020. I love the full range of the 817 but wish it didn’t weigh 3 pounds! And in the end I may not take anything, given it is a six day wilderness trip and weight will be a premium. But it is fun to play with the stuff anyway.
Have fun, Michael!
