I’ve been using G5RV antenna for at least. 3 years now. G5RV performs very well on 20 meters band. I’ve made contacts with 117 DXCC using only G5RV. Mine is junior sized.

I am thinking to try new antenna. My choice is still from wire antenna. Comparing G5RV with W5GI, I think W5GI is better since it has 6 radiation lobes on 20 meters band while G5RV only have 4 lobes.

I read about this antenna from ham radio magazine long time ago but had no chance to think about it.

Maybe it is time for a change.
