Ultra portable End Fed Half Wave (EFHW) Portable antenna Kit SOTA POTA

MK2 version of our smallest End Fed Half Wave (EFHW) antenna kit.  For ultra-portable use, weighing in at approximately 36 grams (1.27 ounces) when assembled using a Fair-Rite T82-43 ferrite core.


This is a perfect antenna to use with QRP tranceivers (Xeigu x6100, FX4-CR, Tr(u)SDX, ICOM705, Elecraft KX2 and KX3 etc. 


The PCB has been designed to allow for three different cores types ;

  • Fair-Rite T50 (5943000301) 5w SSB, 2w Data/CW, 80-10m bands.
  • Fair-Rite T82 (5943000501) 20w SSB, 6w Data/CW 80-10m bands.
  • Wurth (74270118) 10w SSB, 3w Data/CW, the best option for 40-10m bands.


The Kit contains;

  • PCB
  • Fair-Rite T50-43 toroid core (other toroid options available)
  • M3 fittings including wing nut and solder tab
