Well fitted the G5RV half size last week and got to gave it a go today, Russia, Canada, Czech Republic , Belarus all on 50watts 20 metre band with ease well happy, tried a comparison with the SRC HF 360 antenna, when I was speaking into Canada it didnt make any difference, they were getting no signal of me on either antenna but were receiving about the same, Russia was a bit different as the G5RV was doing a bit better and I was certainly receiving better on the wire by about 2 db, sometimes it was better sometimes the same but great to have the both of them.

Photos to follow..............
