G5RV wire antenna HF multiband
Invented by G5RV amateur, R. Louis VARNEY published for the first time the technical documentation of its antenna in November 1966.
The G5RV wire antenna have 2 versions: 1/2 half size, about 16 meters long, covering 4 HF Amateur bands from 7 to 30 Mhz 40/20/15/10m, or full size of about 31 meters long and covering 5 HF bands from 3.5 to 30Mhz: 80/40/20/15/10m.
- Multiband with excellent result on amateur bands 80/40/20m, good on 30m and 17m, and average for 15/12/10m
- Efficient for local traffic and DX when placed high above the ground above 10 meters (7m minimum)

To use G5RV in multi-band, without any risk for transceiver, the G5RV antenna must be associated to a tuner.
