Hustler 5 btv antennaUploader: Wayne 10 days ago Subscribe 1292
K2PJWMar 26, It is true that it won't out do a inverted V on the lower bands. Still not happy with it; all the comments on difficulty tuning, requiring radials to work and lots of themare all true. Well- I've got a 5BTV or 6BTVno 30 meter coverage M ounted on a steel "T" fence post Farmer style grounded to a "woven wire fence" think sheep, dog or small cattle fence and grounded to that. This can be easily done by winding around 10 - 15 turns of coax on a 4" former, fastening with plastic wraps or tape and then removing the former so that the coil is air wound. Of course I was able to get the tubing for the spider assy from them. For the money spent, well worth it. With radials, it's a very good antenna. I bought this to replace a Butternut and the Butternut never gave me the trouble this one did.
