Build Your Field Day Antenna

If you’re searching for an easy-to-build, four-band antenna kit for ARRL Field Day, look no further than an end-fed half-wave (EFHW) antenna. This kit is popular with portable operators because of it’s ease of construction and mechanical simplicity in a variety of installation configurations (sloping, horizontal, L, etc.)


Unlike the dipole antenna, the EFHW is a half-wavelength antenna with the coaxial cable for your transceiver attached at one end. The antenna works on 10, 15, 20, and 40 meters. Every Field Day site in June needs this antenna!

Check out ARRL’s YouTube EFHW antenna 3-part series where we build the kit with step-by-step instruction, set it up, test it outside, and get on the air with a POTA activation:
