I recently purchased an EFHW antenna from Emergency Amateur Radio Club of Hawaii for $56 shipped, below:
It’s pretty well made, the joints are soldered and it’s installed in a simple project box:
The enclosure seems a bit less substantial than I’d like, so I decided to mount it to a piece of Plexiglass for mounting. I cut a piece, and drilled a few holes, rounded and sanded the edges:
And mounted the matching box to the Plexiglass:
I’ll also drill holes for the antenna wire later, when I have a better idea where they need to be.
Included is 30′ of wire. It looks like a nice little unit, and my hope is to get it strung up mobile this weekend for testing.
See you soon.
