The G5RV is the most popular multiband antenna in the world. It is low cost and provides good performance on most HF bands. The G5RV antennas we carry are Made in the USA and are built to last. Featuring water proofed interconnections, no bare wire connections and strong, rugged components - this antenna will stand the test of time.
G5RV antennas remain very, very popular here in the United States and around the world with HAMs for a variety of reasons. Primarily, they’re all band performance in a fairly compact package. But, what I really like about these antennas and why we carry them here at Amateur Radio Supplies, we have a really high quality end insulator that’s 100% UV stable. We’ve got 14 gauge wire, which is up to the national electric code for permanent residential installations. So this wire, the end insulator can really stand the test of time. It also includes 450 ohm ladder line that feeds down from the center insulator into the ladder line to coax transition. The transition is completely waterproof. It’s epoxy filled and you could see the SO239 connector, stainless steel hardware there. The window line is steel wire, copper clad. The center insulator as well you can see we’ve got mechanical crimping here so that these connections are going to stand the test of time.
So, that’s why we’ve selected these G5RV antennas for Amateur Radio Supplies. We think they’re the best on the market. They’re going to last the longest. They’re going to give you the best performance in time.
