Hi everyone!

4-Band DXCC from anywhere in a summer season alone is a great feat as-is, and with a DX Flagpole in an HOA too!? Indeed, Ham Radio is fun again!

We are hearing reports from all over the world, ham radio ops telling us they can work the world again. Well, it is a real antenna after all. It hears amazingly well and most say "I can work what I hear." That's just FB and exactly what most of us need, right?

Are you ready for the next DX season? Do you know why our verticals are called, "high performance" HF antennas? Hint: It has something to do with Smart, Strong and Elegant.

Below is a message we received from a happy radio op who is surprised to be working the world with his Greyline 20’ DX vertical antenna from his home QTH from 75M to 6M with a 1.8:1 SWR! 

That's a good looking install, Craig. Way to keep the XYL happy, sir.

This is what Craig had to say...



Hi Jon at Greyline!

After using the Greyline 20’ OCV for several months I wanted to tell you how happy I am with its performance!

With a little tweaking of the installation, I now have matches of no greater than 1.8 to 1, 75M thru 6M.

Even with the poor band conditions, we are currently experiencing, I have worked some nice DX….Albania, Peru, Ecuador Brazil, Italy, Spain and most other European countries with great reports on 100 watts from the TS-890. Nothing too exotic yet but I have not really worked at it either.

In short, if I can hear them, I can work them even through some serious pileups.

I am particularly impressed (and surprised) with 6M performance. I have had good reports as far as OK and ME. Really looking forward to improving conditions as the next sunspot cycle ramps up!

Thanks for the great customer support and info!

73, Craig W3GF

PS. I forgot to mention that my noise level is also several S-units lower than with my former 1/4 wave trap vertical which makes a real difference!


You're welcome, Craig! 

Would you like to get on the air with your friends, with the same level of DX confidence, busting pile-ups and working the world from 160-6M? Try one of our DXF (Stealth DX Flagpole) or DXV (non-stealth DX Vertical) HF vertical antennas, today. 

Ham Radio is fun again! See you on the air, soon.
