Over the last 40 years G5RV dipoles have become the most
widely used general purpose multi-band antennas in the world. Good performance,
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
From 20 on it favors DX with four to six low angle lobes reaching out in all directions.

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 PL259 on the feed-stub to connect to your
coax, and we also included a barrel connector.
