I didn’t have mine mounted any higher than that. The antenna can be installed anywhere, either on the rooftop, on the trailer hook or on a camper car during vacations. Due to the slim body the antenna is very unobtrusive.

Total length only approx 3m MV I have the older discontinued Diamond m CP6 and is not finiky at all, easy to install and logs DX quite easily The center frequency can be adjusted for each band.
I will look into the R I was shocked by the fit and finish of the antenna when I’ve receive it.
I choose the CP-5HS on the reputation of their antennas quality. In this band the antenns is surprising in local ou regional qso’s. If I had this to do over again, I would definitely try a Dipole first. Tuned it with a Rig Expert AA, and was on the air in less than an hour after I began setting it up.
Diamond CP-5HS Product Reviews
Gain on 2m is 2. It when up in around 1 hour dimaond a 10′ pole. The radials can be installed on one side only if space restriction requires. Excellent explanations about antenna radial systems are provided by some manufacturers, for example by SteppIR and Bencher english text:.
I narrowed my options to Cushcraft, Comet and Diamond. New to Ham Radio? I was VERY pleased.
Ease of setup and operation speaks for itself. Includes mast clamps 30 to 62mm and PL connector. Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same location. Already have many European contacts in the log including 40m.
I’m not sure what the difference between the ‘5 and the ‘5H is but it appears the H only covers and can handle higher power. I was hoping that with the CP5H being 11 or so foot, that I could mount on a 10 to 15 foot mast and keep it up always. Please note the variants of the 80m radial.
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: Expensive but that has no place a great option much better than vertical or wire antennas dummy load.
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. Weight only 4kg, transport length only 1.

Appreciate the feedback and I will check out the Hustler. It’s not brilliant on 40 either, being still quite short, but well capable of working DX with W on the higher bands. Add to shopping cart.
Overall I am extremely impressed at this antennas performance in Puerto Rico.

My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. This thing is years ahead in terms of craftmanship and materials compared to Cushcraft.
Might I suggest a Cushcraft? Like any such antenna it ciamond a good counterpoise radials, conducting surface. All in all, I am not unhappy with my purchase, although it would be nice if it were a bit less expensive.
G0GQKEiamond 24, K6FIJan 17, That’s good, because the one criticism I was going to make of the ‘5 is that the bandwidth fp-5hs pretty small on 80 and it doesn’t work that well anyway.
Sounding more and more like I am getting a new antenna. For the same reason a short cable with a choke is included in the shipment. Diamond CP5H any thoughts? Was a bit scared purchasing a vertical trap, but living in base housing means space restricted.
