The resonance frequencies are adjusted for each band separately except 10 and 12m, which influence each other slightly and might require a tuner. Already have many European contacts in diamodn log including 40m. If that gets it above most of the trees, bushes and surrounding buildings there won’t be much gained by having it any higher.
The radiator of the CP-6 is DC-grounded which gives a good protection against static charges and nearby lightnings. Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same location. I choose the CP-5HS on the reputation of their antennas quality. Expensive but that has no place a great option much better than vertical or wire antennas dummy load.
If I had this to do over again, I would definitely try a Dipole first. So it would be worth getting some stuff to try to prevent that, when you assemble it. Includes a radial kit of PVC coated copper wire one radial per band. Connector PL jack, the small transport length only 1. Not in stockback in 25 days.
Diamond CP-5HS 5 Band Vertical Antenna
Might I suggest a Cushcraft? I was hoping that with the CP5H being 11 or so foot, that I could mount on a 10 to 15 foot mast and keep it cp-5ys always. On some bands a simple tuner is required, the built-in tuners of many rigs are usually sufficient.
K6FIJan 17, They are quite easy to tune up by changing the length of radials. I was shocked by the fit and finish of the antenna when I’ve receive it. This reduces the influence of the mast to resonance of the radials, which in turn eases cp-5ns tuning of the radials.
Diamond CP-5HS 5 band vertical antenna
I worked all continents with diamond CP-5H in 6, 10, 15 and 20 meters phone end cw in this bands the range is good. Excellent explanations about antenna radial systems are provided by some manufacturers, cp-5ha example by SteppIR and Bencher english text:. Usual high quality finish and easy mounting, as known by Diamond products.

In this band the antenns is surprising in local ou regional qso’s. Due to the slim body the antenna is very unobtrusive. Following that effort and over this past weekend, I did manage to make a couple of contacts. For operation on HF no further radials are required! Sounding more and more like I am getting a c-5hs antenna.
I have only had this antenna for a week, but it certainly performs as advertised. This thing is years ahead in terms of craftmanship and materials compared to Cushcraft. The antenna is made from extruded aluminium tubes, all mounting hardware except mast clamp is stainless steel.

Appreciate the feedback and I will check out the Hustler. The antenna does not require radials, the radiator is grounded. Your name or email address:
