I will be a fully licenced Radio Experimenter in about a week. I propose to
use a G5RV in an inverted-vee arrangement with the apex at 60 feet above
the ground and an angle of 120 degrees between the two wires. What I would
like to know is what impedance and type of cable should I use to connect
the S0239 connector of the ribbon feeder of the antenna to the rig ( Yaesu
FT-101ZD), via an ATU? The length of coax cable that I plan to use is
20feet in length.
Also, I'm planning on using a beech tree as a means of supporting the apex
of the antenna. Will this have a degrading effect on the performance of
Any suggestions or details of your experiences with the G5RV are greatly
appreciated. Many thanks for your time.
73's Good DX!
