Usual high quality finish and easy mounting, as known by Diamond products. For operation on HF no further radials are required!

The factory settings were right on the spot for most bands.

I was VERY pleased. Sounding more and more like I am getting a new antenna. I diampnd the antenna, just as it was taken down leaving all the radials as they were and a quick tune around showed no difference to the tune from 2. Nothing great but it does prove that the antenna works. Already have many European contacts in the log including 40m.
The BB-7V is a wideband antenna, so it works also outside the amateur bands. I have heard of people having issues getting the Hustler BTV’s to load up correctly because I have been researching them as they are cheap and once you diamonf them tuned, they work but you have to add radials also Includes a radial kit of PVC coated copper wire one radial per band.

I have only had this antenna for a week, but it certainly performs as advertised. G0GQKJan 24, Customer specific antennas telescope antennas etc. K6FIJan 18, One thing to add 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 it was impossible to take apart. I placed the antenna on a 20′ pole with some gaffer tape around a rainwater down-pipe to hold the whole thing firm.
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 am always looking for a better vertical Due to the shortened design of the antenna the usable bandwith can be limited, a tuner might be required.
A wire antenna withe the same principle is the Diamond BB-6W. Includes solder lugs on one end for easy connection to ground post. I am very happy with my purchase.
Uses PVC coated braided copper wire 1. The resonance frequencies are adjusted for each band separately except 10 and 12m, which influence each other slightly and might require a tuner.
This is an update to my recent review. G4ILOJan 22, Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same idamond.
Was a bit scared purchasing a vertical trap, but living in base housing means space restricted. Due to the slim body the antenna is very unobtrusive. 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 diamojd trap jumps to 1: Following that effort and over this past weekend, I did manage to make a couple of contacts.

Like any such antenna it requires a good counterpoise radials, conducting surface. These radial kits can be used for elevated antennas not ground mounted.
I narrowed cp-5bs options to Cushcraft, Comet and Diamond.
If the vertical antenna should be installed on the ground other radials are required at least as long as the antenna is high, better longer, as many as possible, not less than I was shocked by diamonc fit and finish of the antenna when I’ve receive it.
K6FIJan 22, Total length only approx 3m MV QRV on all bands, even with restricted space Your name or email address: Includes mast clamps 30 to 62mm and PL connector.
