The main antenna MFJ 1788X Hi Q Loop takes some fine tuning and a little experience is needed in the beginning, but this antenna exceeds all expectations!
My EZ End fed is 16.1 meters in length and runs from the inside of the house loft area with a 1-9 Unun through the SG239 smart tuner (so no weather problems) and straight out through the gable block exterior wall. (which I insulated the end fed wire with rubber tube through the wall)
Turning at right angles the end fed run was over the garage roof terminating 3 meters high on a garden fence post. Making the 16.1 meters run.
The many memory settings of the SG239 makes matching easy and SWR is low. I can switch from Antenna to Long wire thus giving me full coverage of HF bands and RX / TX through the EZ end fed while tuning in the Magnetic loop. The EZ End fed wire antenna has
become my 'ears' listening to DX before I tune up my Hi-Q Loop to the same frequency for even greater and better DXing. It must be said that the Loop is much quieter and comes into its own on DX work, whilst the end fed is better locally. See my video on BHi Noise Away on the above tabs.
The MFJ 1788X Hi-Q Loop is placed on the side of the gable end and fitted horizontally.
(see picture Top Right.)
The loop is approximately 28 feet ( 9 Meters) from ground.
