Long Wire Multiband HF Antenna
Suitable for general HF and SWL work, easy to set up, with minimal tuning required, work all bands 1.5-30mhz. Radiates best as an inverted V, but can also be setup as a simple long wire.
Multi-Band HF antenna is designed by BG7PNV for hams by hams!
This antenna is very convenient to set up. It can be set up in 1 minute by 1 person, and the antenna does not need to be debugged. The standing wave from 1.5mhz-30mhz is very ideal. There is no strict requirement from the ground. It will work from 0.5m and up above the ground

- 1 x 20m Main Element
- 2 x 1.5m Ground Elements
- 1 x High Power 500 Ohm 100W Watt Aluminum Shell Case Wirewound Resistor (to bleed off static interference)

This antenna originally came from abroad, and the description of this antenna abroad: "It is widely used in military, water conservancy and other emergency communication. The antenna is concealed, easy to erect, does not need to be debugged, and does not require a day adjustment. It can be at 1.5-30mhz. Short-wave full-length work, 0-500 km without blind zone, effective distance and inverted v antenna, effective communication within 1000 km." As early as in 2005, I have done 1 batch for a few radio friends in Shenzhen. It is quite practical and convenient. It is especially suitable for those who are not ideal in urban setting, and who are too small to be able to set up. Friends who can't go up, because it can be erected in the roof, balcony, window sill, field, etc., and can be erected in various forms, horizontal, inverted v, triangle, frame, serpentine, folding, window, etc. Etc., and it is invisible erection (outsiders do not know what this is, think it is the rope to dry clothes, free of complaints). When it is erected outdoors, it is more convenient. You can easily pick up the antenna at a distance of 0.5 meters or more on the roadside. The geographical position can't straighten the antenna. If there is no problem, let the antenna go around 's'. Type can also be done, 1 minute to get the antenna erection! ! It is a good helper for setting up radio stations in special outdoor and setting up radio stations in special environments! ! !
Recently, many HAM friends, feedback back, HF20A tilted 10 degrees in a frame-type horizontal, the communication effect is very good. Particularly representative is the BG7YB (Hainan Haikou) triangular window obliquely pulled down to the big tree downstairs, which communication effect is comparable to the short wave Yagi, the sound is loud and full, the signal is just, within 1000 km, thunder-like signal! Extraordinary!
HF20A is a multi-purpose short-wave full-length single-line traveling wave antenna with high radiation efficiency and convenient installation. It can be used for personal portable stations and temporary base stations in the field. Often used to compensate for the presence of NVIS blind spots in general antennas. When the cable is erected, the 25W~50W portable platform can be used for 0~800km, and the 125W vehicle can be used for 0~1500km. When the flat pull is erected, the directional communication distance is further.

This antenna has low SWR on most bands and works very well as a receiving antenna. It works as a transmitting antenna but doesn't provide much range. SWR was not good on 10M either. If you are looking for a reasonable antenna for close range coverage that is easy to setup, this antenna is for you. If you are looking for a pounding signal report from afar away, I don't think this antenna would be your right choice for you. I take it camping with me. Throw it out and I've got comms on HF. Its great for that. 73
Very fast to set up !!!
