Used the rainy Sunday for a bit of antenna DIY activity.
Outcome is a case with included winder for an end-fed half wave for 40/20/15/10m based on the classic EFHW design using an FT 114-43 with 2 primary and 16 secondary windings.
3D printing files shared here:
In addition I added to my version a link connector (3mm plug) and tuned another ~ 7m to add the 60m band to my setup.
This gives me 60/40/20/15/10 m bands in one compact package.
The wire used is the ‘Antenna Wire - lightweight’ from the well know shop with SOTA in the company name hi
It is soldered to the enamel wire, shrinking tube added and folded back thru the arrangement of holes to build up friction.
3 holes at the winder edges allow mounting of guy ropes
Looking forward to bring it on the air.
