So, you're saying his design does not scale to other bands, and no other
manufacturer has built a scaled model and sold it as a G5RV-type design
then?  Wonder what band Yagi-san built his original, well, uh, "yagi" for .
. .    I'm just sayin' .  .  .

Yes, he did state that it works on the other bands. His reason for the
design was for a 20 meter antenna which would fit in his garden (back yard)
and give him gain in the directions he needed. The other bands were a plus.
He had no 40 meter version or 80 meter version. There is one and only one
G5RV antenna, Varney's original design. Anything else is not a G5RV so quite
calling it that.

come up with an 80 and 40 meter versions of a G5RV. The G5RV is a 20 meter
antenna, PERIOD. G5RV designed it for 20 meters. Anything other than his
design is not a G5RV, it is a center feed dipole.> >> > 73, Bill KC4ATU> >>

for a G5RV is the same antenna except the antenna and feed line is just cut
to half size. It will not work on 80M.> > Keep The Faith, Jim K9TF/WA9YSD> >
