    So I have a end fed dipole I use for 40-10M on my ICom 7300, rather than putting up another antenna for 11m can I just use this antenna for my 11M radio too? I think LDG makes a generic tuner I could use with the 11M radio? The antenna resonates on 40-20-15-10m I believe.

    Thanks

    Try it and tell us if it will work. That's my way of playing with antennas. ;)

    It would probably work but just how well is the big question.
    For the cost of the tuner you might be able to buy a regular CB base antenna.

    I have an EFHW 80-10m up. I use it occasionally on 11 m, however, I find the resonant 11m vertical dipole works better.
