Might I suggest a Cushcraft? If that gets it above most of the trees, bushes and surrounding buildings there won’t c-5hs much gained by having it any higher. Keep up the good work, Diamond. On some bands a simple tuner is required, the built-in tuners of many rigs are usually sufficient.

Contact the site with comments or questions. It’s not brilliant on 40 either, being still quite short, but well capable of working DX with W on the higher bands. Already have many European contacts in the log including 40m.
Excellent explanations about antenna radial systems are provided by some manufacturers, for example by SteppIR and Bencher english text:. I have heard of people having issues getting the Hustler BTV’s to load up correctly because I have been researching them as they are cheap and once you get them tuned, they work but you have to add radials also Diamond multiband vertical HF antenna with shortened radials for 6, 10, 15, 20, 40, 80m.
Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same location. All in all, I am not unhappy with my purchase, although it would be nice if it were a bit less expensive.

I have had a couple of Diamond CP5s in the past and they work quite well, if you can get them up so the base is in the clear. I was VERY pleased. If the vertical antenna should be installed on the ground other cp-5hz are required at least as long as the antenna is high, better longer, as cp–5hs as possible, not less than Tuned it with a Rig Expert AA, and was on the air in less than an hour after I began setting it up.
K6FIJan 25, Whether the price agrees with the performance remains to be seen.

Add to shopping cart. So far the performance is good even on 40m, surprising for such a compromise antenna.
If I had this to do over again, I would definitely try a Dipole first. Due to the shortened design of the antenna the usable bandwith can be limited, a tuner might be required.
Weight only 4kg, transport length only 1. For operation on HF no further radials are required! The vertical distance between the U-brackets is 18cm. They are quite easy to tune up by changing the length of radials.
Antenna for 7, 14, 21, 28 and 50MHz, length only 3.
Various shortwave antennas for HF
Multiband vertical antenna for 1. The new “S” version includes material which allows an isolated installation of the antenna to the mast.
Includes solder lugs on one end for easy connection to ground post. In stockshipped in 1 or two days. Customer specific antennas telescope antennas etc.
Following that effort and over this past weekend, I did manage to make a couple of contacts. Not in stockback in 25 days. The antenna is fed with a coax cable of any length, PL connector.
