Hi G Whip, I got my new 3 band antenna yesterday the 421 Tribander, I must say the quality is GREAT/unbelievable, I have never seen an Amateur antenna built like this before. Kevlar wire (Mil Spec) and all stainless steel fittings for just £50!!. I installled it as per info enclosed and it was BANG on. Wkd a YB in Indonesia on 40 mtrs with 50 watts, amazing as propagation seems poor this week. For a 12 mtr antenna it is superb both in quality and performance. I looked at Par End Fed and HyEnd Fed and your prices are about 1/3rd of their costs, Well done guys…………….tks Danny Northumbria.

Very many thanks for your prompt and efficient service in sending me your new antenna, which arrived this morning. Even though I have had aerials from you in the past, and know of their high quality, I still marvel at the sheer quality of this latest G-Whip aerial. The nice box in which it is presented is also a real bonus. Very well done Geoff. I am really looking forward to its use, in particular on 40mtrs, which I have not been able to use for a very long time. Kind regards and many thanks for your top rate service and wonderful aerial. ….John – GW3OIN

From next week we will sell the matching unit with free insulator/solder tag/wire lock/thimble etc from just £35 plus p/p plus also versions of the in line inductor for multiband operation from £15 plus p/p, just add a 1/2 wave length of good quality wire for the band you want to make, trim it and off you go………………watch the news/post pages for pictures and the sweeps.
