If you're looking to improve your G5RV HF antenna, then this tutorial from AE4VT and N4UFP is for you!
The video takes us from a design concept to an actual build and test of the ZS6BKW. According to AE4VT, most of the antenna materials can be found at the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.
You may have to buy 450-ohm ladder line through the internet.
While the G5RV is an excellent antenna, the ZS6BKW substantially improves multiband HF coverage.
