I'm intrigued by the MyAntennas EFHW-8010P. This is the 200 watt version that uses 18 gauge wire. I considering this antenna for portable operations where I'd be setting up a temporary station in a public park. The set-up would be by myself, so I'm looking for options where I'd be able to set up an antenna without a tremendous amount of effort. I've used dipoles and off-center fed antennas, but never an end-fed.I've used lots of wire antennas in my time and have settled on the Myantennas EFHW-8010 as my primary HF home antenna.
If I understand the layout of the EFHW-8010, you have the balun in a fixed location and the coax from the radio attaches to the balun. Running out of the balun is 130 feet of wire. But, how does that wire need to be arranged? Does one end of the wire have to be high off the ground? Does the center of the wire have to be high off the ground? Does the balun require any kind of counterpoise? Do you have to lay out a ground wire?
Since you have experience with the EFHW-8010, I'm hoping you can help. Thank you.
