Par End Fed antenna

Someone suggested I either build a homemade version or replace the broken EF-10-20-40 Par end fed antenna. Par antennas were made by LnR Precision many years ago and I have no idea if these antennas are still in production. Anyone know? 

My original one gave good performance at this and the old QTH. It stopped working last year.

Thanks to Keith, I am a little closer. Apparently Vibroplex now sell these.

Nevada sells a 30W MFJ version covering 10-40m.

I believe they’re now made by Vibroplex and sold under the EndFedZ name. Nevada used to sell them in the U.K., but I don’t know if they still do.

Roger, I would prefer a hyendfed these days. Made in Europe by a fellow dutch ham.


I think quality is very high, price is high as well but I think the Par endfed is expensive as well. I have good results with a homemade 3 band endfed when portable. Easy to set up.
