Hi Yiannis,

I like EFHW Antennas, easy to setup, no tuner required (at least for my 40,20,10m EFHW), very portable and can be mounted vertical and horizontal. I mainly use the antenna in a vertical setup on a fiberglass pole in the garden. Either you build one yourself or buy it from hyendfed.nl, great quality for a reasonable price.

Hi Roland,

Thank you for your response.

I would like to use it as vertical antenna with my 10meter fishing pole.

Also  I would like to ask you EFHW if Ι need to use counterpoints or ground ?

Maybe try a end fed using 1 or 2 Slinky's or a compact dipole from them, I have a dipole made from Slinky's in my roof space, some info here --> https://www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/frank_radio_antenna.htm
