Long Wire Antennas - The LW range
These are all end fed long wire aerials. They all incorporate the M0CVO 9:1 UNUN at the feedpoint enabling them to be fed directly with 50ohm coaxial cable. The 9:1 UNUN also removes static noise and provides a DC path to earth. All are able tohandle up to 400W RF (full UK limit).
LW-10: 10m in length, this will work on all bands from 40m - 6m via an ATU. Ideal where space is at a premium.
LW-20: 20m in length, this will work on all bands from 80m - 6m via an ATU. Big performance from a small footprint.
These antennas give excellent results where space is at a premium. However, please note that due to the varying impedance found on any long wire antenna, the built in AATU in your average transceiver will not be able to cope with all bands. For full band coverage you will need an external ATU or possible some form of capacitive loading system. This can be a simple L or T match.
