Both signal reports were just above the noise cp5-hs, so performance isn’t spectacular, especially since I’m only running watts. That’s good, because the one criticism I was going to make of the ‘5 is that the bandwidth is pretty small on 80 and it doesn’t work that well anyway. If that gets it above most of the trees, bushes and surrounding buildings there won’t be much gained by having it any higher. Thoughts or past experience is appreciated. Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same location.

I was shocked by the fit and finish of the antenna when I’ve receive it. Sounding more and more like I am getting a new antenna. Register for a free QRZ account. The antenna does not require radials, the radiator is grounded. The antenna is made from extruded aluminium tubes, all mounting hardware except mast clamp is stainless steel.
One thing to damond is that I destroyed mine taking it down after it had been up for a year because the screws holding the bits together were so corroded that cp-5us was impossible to take apart.
Requires a simple coax tuner for operation, the built in tuners usually work well, in some cases a tuner extender e. Total height only 4. Already have many European contacts in the log including 40m. K6FIJan 22, G4ILOJan 18, Diamond multiband vertical HF antenna with shortened radials for 6, 10, 15, 20, 40, 80m.
The radials should be installed so that they do not touch the ground, nor the roof nor any other obstacle.
Total length only approx 3m MV QRV on dixmond bands, even with restricted space If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.
The vertical distance between the U-brackets is 26cm. Uses PVC coated braided copper wire 1. The factory settings were right on the spot for most bands.
Diamond CP-5HS 5 Band Vertical Antenna
Due to the slim body the antenna is very unobtrusive. I was VERY pleased. I didn’t have mine mounted any higher than that. I choose the CP-5HS on the reputation of their antennas quality. K6FIJan 18, This reduces the influence of the mast to resonance of the radials, which in turn eases the tuning of the radials.
I narrowed my options to Cushcraft, Comet and Diamond. Was a bit scared purchasing a vertical trap, but living in base housing means space restricted. G0GQKJan 24, Simple installation, no alignment required.
For the diamonf reason a short cable with a choke is included in the shipment. Although not now in production, and it should be, I have a Cushcraft R5 which is about 15 years old, and the only time it causes any trouble is when it soaking wet and the 17 metre trap jumps to 1: Multiband vertical antenna for cp5-hs. In this band the antenns is surprising in local ou regional qso’s. I bought this and mounted it on the roof of our single floor, flat roof, concrete box house on base. The radiator of the CP-6 is DC-grounded which gives a good protection against static charges and nearby lightnings.
My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. New to Ham Radio? Connector PL jack, the small transport length only 1. So nice and stable and it did a c-p5hs job for the day, lots of band activity and little band noise due to a good location away from electrical noise sources, ADSL etc.
Diamond CP5H any thoughts?
So far the performance is good even on 40m, surprising for such a compromise antenna. Expensive but that has no place a great option much better than vertical or wire antennas dummy load. I worked all continents with diamond CP-5H in 6, 10, 15 and 20 meters phone end cw in this bands the range is good. I placed the antenna on a 20′ pole with some gaffer tape around a rainwater down-pipe diamind hold the whole thing firm. I will look into the R Due to the shortened design of the antenna the usable bandwith can be limited, a tuner might be required.
The antenna can be installed anywhere, either on the rooftop, on the trailer hook or on a camper car during vacations.

The antenna works on all bands as a quarter wave vertical. So it would be worth getting some stuff to try to prevent that, diqmond you assemble it.
Appreciate the feedback and I will check out the Hustler.
