How It All Started:
Today I am using a Kenwood TS590S connected to "End Fed Wire antennas" due to local restrictions.
My primary antenna is a End Fed Long wire of 158 m (518 feed) lenght, covering 1.8 to 30 MHz and mounted about 8m up with the line strung started top of the roof through a few steel poles in the garden ending in a oak tree.
The second antenne is also an End Fed wire of 42m covering 3.5 to 30 MHz.
Entering the shack after a magnetic balun, followed by a current balun and finally matched by the MFJ-993B antenne tuner to the TRX.
I have a clear area and run the antenna wire straight north-south. It has been working just fine for me, considering the low height for the wire and the fix direction.
Early Jan 2015 I repaired my old TS930SAT Kenwood with the help of W3AFC. John had the same power supply problem and broken drivers in the PA too, but ... he took note about everything and wrote a very interesting paper. Thanks John for the help and motivating me to fire-up again this old Flag ship of Kenwood.
My VHF antenna is a Diamond X-50 vertical, mounted 8m height and used for the dual band Standard C528 portable transceiver, 70cm and 2m
WSPR since Jan 2015 using the famous Ultimate3 kit feeding the end fed antennas with 150mW.
