Over the last 58 years G5RV dipoles have become the most widely used general purpose multi-band antennas in the world. Good performance, modest size, low cost, simplicity, and versatility are the reasons for this popularity.
    Invented in 1946 by Louis Varney, whose call sign is G5RV, the basic antenna measures only 102 feet across the top, and is fed at the center through a low loss 30-ft feed-stub. The interaction between the radiating section and the feed-stub makes the G5RV easy to match on all-bands from 80 through 10 meters with an ordinary low-cost antenna tuner. In spite of small size, it provides dipole equivalent coverage on 80 and 40 meters. From 20 on it favors DX with four to six low angle lobes reaching out in all directions.

    Want Complete Data? Get Technote 124 from Antennas & More. With 36 pages on the G5RV, it's the only complete reference. The Technote explains why the G5RV works, shows radiation patterns for each band, details the effect of height and configuration, answers commonly asked installation questions, gives step-by-step instructions for assembly using commonly available material.
     Antennas & More provides three types of G5RV antenna system in sizes to fit every need and situation.  All use rugged kink-proof insulated wire and are rated for full 2KW legal power.

Antennas & More G5RV
     Designed originally for use by an international rescue and relief organization, this family of G5RV antennas is made of the most durable and easily used materials available. Fully assembled and ready to go, it is the fastest way to get on the air.
    Our insulated wire top section rejects kinks and protects against corrosion and accident. Special feed-stub material resists abrasion and refuses to work harden and break when whipped in the wind or repeatedly deployed and rolled up for storage. Sleek non-reflective black design makes this the least obtrusive G5RV on the market. That's why this is the most popular G5RV for rooftop and attic installation. Completely assembled and ready to hang up, with a SO connector on the feed-stub to connect to your coax.

Requires antenna tuner.
