Hi Geoff, As mentioned, I have brought my new G Whip 421 end-fed down to South Africa to accompany my KX3. It’s currently strung up at 2m AGL outside our national park bungalow and I’m working a local contest on 40m. First contact 700km with 5w and no problems. Second contact 500km with 59 report received. It’s a great traveling antenna. Best 73 Nigel ZS2/GJ7LJJ
This is a superb made unit and works very well on 10/20/40 Mtrs at just 12 mtrs long, during tests we worked 125 DXCC Countries in 12 hours under poor HF conditions. In 4 weeks since its’ release we have sent out over 100 units and the reports have been fantastic. Check the info and prices page for pricing and stock situation….Ed

Hi Geoff, Was feeling down today and through the door comes ’XMAS’ again , a new toy to enthuse me to resume hamming and aim for 126 countries lol ,only kidding.
It’s a lovely unit particularly the presentation box with the high quality units ‘brand name“50 years of G-Whip” label ,makes me feel nostalgic and highly appreciative of you still acknowledging those times. So lucky that you took it on and made such a success of it, guess its classed as a ‘Brand name ‘ nowadays.
Thank you Geoff once again , my kind regards to your wife from us both and I will keep you posted on the antennae installation when I get my Great Great grandson to climb the ladder to the roof apex, he is 7 months old and full of beans unlike me Hi!
