G5RV Jr HF antenna

Reuploaded due to YouTubes transcoder killing half the audio.

This is a video showing off the setup of my G5RV Jr 40-10m HF antenna which I bought from W8AMZ. It is mounted around 6 or 7m in the air and each end is tied off to the fence. The antenna tunes up well with the autotuner in the Icom IC-746 on the 40, 20, 15, and 10m bands. It’s a great antenna, well made and rather inexpensive. I highly recommend it.

To clarify something in the video, I have not made any contacts on 80m so I’m not sure how well it works on that band, although it tunes up fine with an external antenna tuner.
