A homebrew G5RV (PVC pipe used for center insulator and mast)
|G5RV Size||Legs||Vert. radiator (300 ohm twin lead)|
- 1. Use a minimum of 50 feet of coax (I prefer RG-8X) for 10-40 meter size and 100 feet of coax for other sizes.
- 2. You can “hardwire” all connections (solder and waterproof) or use 1:1 balun (CT) for twin lead to coax connection if concerned with TVI as I was operating from an apartment (or 8-10 turns of 6″ diameter on coax for homebrew choke may work for you). Spi-Ro Manufacturing makes neat baluns with screw terminals (www.spiromfg.com).

How did you arrive at lengths for twin lead and legs? Did velocity factor figure into your equation? de n4iyx
