ZS6BKW / G5RV Optimized Multi Band HF Dipole Antenna Flex-Weave
ZS6BKW / G5RV Optimized Multi Band HF Dipole Antenna Flex-Weave by Ni4L Antennas & Electronics at Mountain Walk. MPN: ZS6BKW / G5RV. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. The ZS6BKW antenna is an optimized variant of the venerable old G5RV. Unlike the original G5RV, which requires an antenna tuner on all bands, the ZS6BKW / G5RV is capable of operating on 10, 12, 17, 20 & 40m bands, generally without a tuner, and with SWR readings usually at 1.5:1 or less. Using a tuner, 6, 15, 30 & 80m bands are attained with much higher efficiency than the original G5RV. Each Antenna is handmade to order with materials carefully tested & selected by Ni4L for quality &
Product Description & Reviews
The ZS6BKW antenna is an optimized variant of the venerable old G5RV. Unlike the original G5RV, which requires an antenna tuner on all bands, the ZS6BKW / G5RV is capable of operating on 10, 12, 17, 20 & 40m bands, generally without a tuner, and with SWR readings usually at 1.5:1 or less. Using a tuner, 6, 15, 30 & 80m bands are attained with much higher efficiency than the original G5RV. Each Antenna is handmade to order with materials carefully tested & selected by Ni4L for quality & durability: #14 POLYETHYLENE BLACK JACKETED FLEX-WEAVETM - machine crimped for permanent connection (92'), FLEXI 420-OHM LADDER LINE #16 AWG (40'), W2AU LL-TRANSULATOR, LADDER-LOCTM Center insulator, SS hardware & two small end insulators. Hanging the Z6SBKW/G5RV: The ZS6BKW/ G5RV is completely assembled and ready to hang. It requires about 92' of space and should be hung around 40' high or higher. It can be hung in a flat top or inverted V configuration. Unlike Windom and OCF Dipoles, the ZS6BKW / G5RV is a very forgiving antenna when it comes to nearby towers, trees, fences and other structures. IMPORTANT NOTE: As with all models of the G5RV antenna, the Optimized version also requires a minimum of 70 feet of 50-52 ohm coax to complete the matching network. Without this 70 foot of coax, the antenna will NOT function correctly.
Features & Highlights
- FLEXI 420-OHM LADDER LINE #16 AWG: (40') 2 #16 AWG; 19/29 strands Cu-clad with black poly jacket. Nominal OD .065 x .930; Extra flexible & less likely to break in the wind. Nominal impedance 420(ohms); VP 91.7%. Good for -20oC to +60oC degrees;
- W2AU LL-TRANSULATOR: is the latest configuration of the very popular W2AU ANsulator. Using the same body design, the traditional eyebolt design on the sides has been replaced with Stainless Steel bolts, washers, and nut assemblies. Like the W2AU ANsulator, it has a built-in lightning arrestor with 600 lbs. of pull-apart strength, in a weatherized, rugged package;
- Ladder-LocTM Center insulator: The Ladder-Loc TM is a strain-relief and mounting support for 450-ohm ladder-line. It is UV-stabilized and has a proven field record of durability. Over 15,000 have been shipped to satisfied users;
- SS hardware & two small end insulators.
- Polyethylene black jacketed #14 FLEX-WEAVE TM, machine crimped: (92') Constructed of 168 strands of #36 wire in a #14 highly UV-resistant PVC jacket. Provides rope lay construction strength and high flexibility. It won't kink or rust out as will copper-clad wire. The PVC jacket has superior abrasion resistance for running through trees and is UV and weather resistant for use on the seacoast or in other harsh environments. It will stand up to acid rain, high wind loads, and high snow & ice loads;

mpn: 2band80/40fandipolewith balunfw,
The 2 element fan dipole works very well at covering all the bands 80-6 meters, using a tuner on the non resonant bands. We cut the element for the lower frequency and let it serve double duty at the odd harmonic, thus enabling greater band coverage. ie. 80/30, 40/15 meters. Since this antenna has no exposed metal wire static charges can not build up thus reducing noise by 6dB over antennas constructed of exposed wire. W2AU 1:1 balun is at the center of this hardy antenna. The dipole is
