Reviews Summary for MyAntennas EFHW-4010P
Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $119.95
Description: This is a 200W version of popular EFHW-4010 End-Fed Half-Wave (EFHW*) antenna for 40/20/15/ and 10m bands. Unlike many END FED antennas on the market, this one does not require the Antenna Tuner to operate. It is resonant Half wave on 40m (7MHz) therefore also resonant on second, third and fourth harmonics. Due to high Impedance feed point, the antenna is less height dependent. You can put it up at 10 or 50 feet in the air without much change in VSWR values.
Product is in production.

Real Deal  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I live in a river valley in the Appalachian foothills - not the ideal QTH for HF antenna performance. This antenna is strung at about 30', slightly sloped with the grade. It is 65' long, terminated at one end by a sealed balun, with a plastic insulator at the far end. The balun unit features an SO239 and three tabs with holes for attaching support line(s). The wire itself is black-coated.
Installation was straightforward and easy.
It has performed remarkably well. I have worked over 300 QSOs, all 50 states, all but two provinces and 30 countries in roughly 3 months, with this being my only HF antenna. It tunes to very close to 1:1 across 40, 20, 15 and 10m using the internal tuner of a 450D. It does seem to have a slightly cardioid pattern with the peak at the far end and slightly lower at the feed end, but this could be caused by external factors.
Highly recommended for those in the market for this type of antenna. I am in the process of figuring out how to put up it's big brother, the 8010P, which covers the WARC bands as well.
Power handling capacity of this unit is listed as 200w.
