Mountain End-fed Half-wave Tuner 40-17m (built and tested)
An end-fed halfwave is one of the most popular and convenient antennas for portable operating. However, most standard antenna tuners cannot match them properly due to their high impedance. That's where our Mountain Tuner comes in!

Weighing in at just 80g (less than 3 oz.), it's light but it's no lightweight. The Mountain Tuner covers the most popular HF bands for portable operating: 40m, 30m, 20m and 17m.

Q My radio does not have an SWR meter can I still use your endfed tuner?
A Absolutely! The great thing about our end fed tuner is that the peak when the tuner is correctly tuned is easy to hear. Just connect your antenna, listen on your receiver and tune for maximum noise. It really is that easy!
