New offering from LNR Precision

This appeared on their Facebook page today:


This is the EFT-10/20/40, which is a "Trail Friendly" version of their popular EF-10/20/40MKII antenna.  The one shown above comes in at a weight of 3.5 ounces.  The EF-10/20/40MKII, which I have, is already no burden to carry. But if you're one of those guys who are into serious hiking (can you say Appalachian Trail?), where every quarter of an ounce makes a huge difference, then you may want to look into this baby.

I love my EF-10/20/40MKII.  I tuned it so that I don't need to use the KX3's autotuner. It didn't take long and only needed a minor adjustment - it was THAT close right out of the package.  Using one of these is simplicity in itself - get one end up in a tree, hook the other end to the radio and go to town! And you make contacts - plenty of them.

How do you get the one end up in a tree? I'm going to try a 8 oz throw bag and light line as it's easy to pack and deploy.
