So far the performance is good even on 40m, surprising for such a compromise antenna.
Radials for vertical antennas. Customer specific antennas telescope antennas etc. I have heard of people having issues getting the Hustler BTV’s to load up correctly because I diwmond been researching them as they are cheap and once you get them tuned, they work but you have to add radials also Tuned it with a Rig Expert AA, and was on the air in less than an hour after I began setting it up.
Usual high quality finish and easy mounting, as known by Diamond products. K6FIJan 17, The center frequency can be adjusted for each band. Made of telescopic aluminum tubes which are fixed with stainless steel hose clamps, including solid mast mount.
Diamond CP5H any thoughts?
I placed the antenna on a 20′ pole with some gaffer tape around a rainwater down-pipe to hold the whole thing firm. On some bands a simple tuner is required, the built-in tuners of many rigs are usually sufficient. The radiator of the CP-6 is DC-grounded which gives a good protection against static charges and nearby lightnings.
Like any such antenna it requires a good counterpoise radials, conducting surface. The BB-7V is a wideband antenna, so it works also outside the amateur bands. Due to the slim body the antenna is very unobtrusive.

In stockshipped in 1 or two days. The vertical distance between the U-brackets is 26cm. Following that effort and over this past weekend, I did manage to make a couple of contacts. Might I suggest a Cushcraft?

cp-h5s Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review. I would still mention the drift when the antenna gets wet, but as a portable antenna that is easy to set up with repeatable performance it is pretty ideal. The vertical distance between the U-brackets is 18cm.
QRV on all bands, even with restricted space Diamond CP5H any thoughts? The antenna works on all bands as a quarter wave vertical.
Various shortwave antennas for HF
Antenna for 7, 14, 21, 28 and 50MHz, length only 3. That’s good, because the one criticism I diamodn going to make of the ‘5 is that the bandwidth is pretty small on 80 and it doesn’t work that well anyway. Connector PL jack, the small transport length only 1. Ease of setup and operation speaks for itself. Both signal reports were just above the noise level, so performance isn’t spectacular, especially since Diamohd only running watts.

A wire antenna withe the same principle is the Diamond BB-6W. So it would be worth getting some stuff to try to prevent that, when you assemble it. Whether the price agrees with the performance remains to be seen. In this band the antenns is surprising in local ou regional qso’s. I was shocked by the fit and finish of the antenna when I’ve receive it. These radial kits can be used for elevated antennas not ground mounted.
I am very happy with my purchase. I was VERY pleased. Add to shopping cart. So nice and stable and it did a great job for the day, lots of band activity and little band noise due to a good location away from electrical noise sources, ADSL etc. K6FIJan 22,
