One of the BEST wire Antennas for 10-80 meter Band. Comes with an antenna tuner for all bands between 80-10m.
The antenna concept
The G5RV is a classic multi-band wire antenna originally conceived by Louis Varney (G5RV). The antenna derives its name from his callsign. This typically a 102 feet long non-resonant multi-band dipole which is usually center-fed. The G5RV uses a unique antenna feed arrangement through a specified length of an open-wire feeder section followed by a length of Co-axial cable. G5RV does not inherently produce low SWR on several of the bands on which it operates. However, the SWR is well within the tuning range of good "Antenna Tuning Units" (ATU). Hence a typical G5RV antenna has to be impedance matched with an ATU placed between the transceiver and the antenna transmission line. G5RV is a fair performer on multiple HF bands and has been widely used as a simple and low cost multi-band wire antenna by many ham radio operators over the generations.
The HamSphere G5RV antenna is a decent performer providing multi-band, horizontally polarized, multi-band wire antenna capability.
