Comments about the equipment in your own words*:
EZ-wire, it's an antenna 16 (about 35 yards) meters
long. It does not need radials or ground connections, but I have a
ground connection. Full coverage of all HF bands from 160m to 10m.
Max Pwr 1KW, Max SWR 1:3 EZwire works well on several configurations
: Horizontal, Vertical, Sloper, L and Zig-Zag, mine is a sloper.
EZ-wire is perfect for limited space. It works very well with my
Alinco DX-R8E with an MFJ-941E.
