Product Description

The G5RV antenna is a multi-band center-fed dipole antenna capable of 1500 Watts.
250' of 3/16" 100% Dacron Polyester Rope Included.

The MFJ-1778 (G5RV) consists of a 102 foot flat top fed with a 32.5 foot 450 ohm matching section ending in an SO-239 coaxial connector.

  • Covers all bands, 160-10 Meters with antenna tuner.

  • 102 feet long, shorter than 80 Meter dipole.

  • Use as inverted V or sloper to be more compact.

  • Use on 160 Meters as Marconi with tuner and ground.

  • Handles full legal limit power. Add coax feed line -- get on the air!

  • 250' of 3/16" 100% Dacron Polyester Rope Included.

Operation on the 160 meter band:

The MFJ-1778 (G5RV) can function as a top loaded vertical antenna with the dipole element acting as

a capacitance hat on 160 meters. Operation on this band requires a ground screen or radial ground

system (see the INSTALLING and OPERATING THE ANTENNA section of the User's Manual below).

The radiation pattern of the antenna is omni-directional and vertically polarized on 160 meters.

 

Note: On 160 meters, the feedline conductors must be tied together and fed in parallel. As an

alternative, either the shield or the center conductor can be fed with the opposite terminal unconnected.

DO NOT try to operate this antenna as a conventional dipole on 160 meters
