End Feed Half Wave antenna for SOTA

As SOTA is becomming more and more an issue for me and I would like to act not only as hunter, but also as activator, I decided to build myself a multiband EFHW antenna. My choice fell to the EFHW antenna as built by HB9EAJ.

Here are some pitures of building the antenna.

The coupler and coil are still “open” and will remain open until testing is done.
Testing is still open. The test will be done as soon as i find some time for.
