In fact, I think that it is very different because, on fan dipole, radiations go to the resonant dipole, which has the lowest resistance. With EFHW, the "good" wire has a very high resistance, so, radiations certainty go to the other wire. Am I right ?

I wonder if you can make several efhw with a unique 49:1unun 🤔
(As it is done for a fan dipole.)
I use a 8m wire for 17m band. Could I plug a 10m wire for 20m band at the same feed point if this wire goes to an other direction for example ?

Yesterday, I've installed a new homebrew End-Fed Half Wave antenna on the roof, tuned on 18MHz.
This morning, I test it with FT8 (usefull mode for testing).
1st QSO : China
2nd QSO : Japan
and yesterday at night (with very low propagation on 17m), I made a QSO with a Brazilian station !
I think this antenna works 😜

(2/2) No matter what you replied to the first poll, do you use proprietary software for amateur radio anyway?
Peu importe ce que vous avez répondu au premier sondage, utilisez-vous quand-même du logiciel propriétaire pour la radio amateur ?

(1/2) How do you feel about proprietary software for amateur radio?

After almost three months and more than 162 hours of learning and repeating, I have achieved what I could not quite believe in at the beginning of last October as a complete newbie without any technical background:

On 08.01.2021, I successfully passed the amateur radio exam in class E (Novice) at the Federal Network Agency in Dortmund/Germany. 😃 Today I got my call sign: DO1MIM.

Hey, I'm looking for a sound bar that offers good dynamic range compression (DRC RF). It's a bit of a pain to watch Netflix and always turn the sound up and down depending on the dialogue, action and music. TV has an HDMI ARC connector.
A tip?
Please no voice assistant (Alexa,Google...)

Seems like a 24/7 JS8Call 2 meter station would be useful for local emergency comms
