Greyline DX Flagpole Antenna owners tell us they are working DX all over the planet... even the "magic band" and 160M too. Are you having fun on the bands too?

"4-band DXCC this summer with my DX Flagpole!" says one happy radio op! 

Our customers are on all bands with one antenna that covers every single frequency. The DX Flagpole for those wanting an elegant and HOA approved solution or for those wanting a solid DX vertical with the same antenna without the Flag, It's just as pretty and the XYL's approve of its low profile demeanor, the Greyline DXV vertical dipole.

Below, W3 & W4 Signal Data from 20' DX Flagpoles, recorded 6/12/2019: 

Both operators are using 20' DX Flagpole Antennas in HOA communities with really good signals in EU on 40M and of course all over the map on 20M. These guys are having a ball on the bands! Are you?

Isn't that really cool? Know someone in an HOA that would like to have fun on the bands again with a real antenna? Pass it on, they will be so glad you did!

"Yup, 80 years old and got it up by myself!"

"Put the MFJ Tuner on back of the shed; 100 feet of buried coax to the house. It tunes on all bands less than 1.5 (gets on 160 with little help and takes 1kW just fine!"

 

 

DELAWARE

"My 20’ flagpole antenna installation is complete and on the air.

The performance so far is fantastic. 40 – 10 Meters are alive! Especially 30 and 20M Europe, Africa, Scandinavia, Russia, North and South America. FT8 on 10 to 30 watts. 

"It looks great and performs great, compliments from several neighbors!"



I am going to order the auto disconnect as soon as I figure out if I can power it off my MFJ-993BRT.

I wanted you to know that I am a happy customer and am spreading the word to hams in my club and area about your great product!

The antenna seems to work as well as could be expected. It's hard to tell because the propagation is so bad! I have no other antenna up, so there's nothing to compare it with. I'm using an LDG YT-1200 tuner instead of the LDG RT/RC-100 as it gives a better SWR reading. I have had some good reports about strong signals from time to time. Here's hoping the propagation improves soon. 73s, Ron in NM

THE QUIET BANDS & LOUD SIGNALS! 

Let's face it. It's a simple vertical, right? Well, apparently not. This week we heard from Kevin who is now inspired to chase his Extra Class license! We are doing our best folks and we love hearing guys like Kevin excited again. - Greyline Performance

Here's what he wrote:

"You're welcome. I love the antenna!

I installed it last weekend. Everything looks great on my external SWR meter as well as the radiometer. 

Anyway, I made many contacts so far with great reports including Europe and all over the US. What really amazes me is how quiet it is for a vertical, my EFHW wire brings in a lot more noise with about the same signal strength as the Greyline DX Flagpole. I can hear weak stations that I would never hear on the wire antenna.

Very happy with the purchase! It looks great as well!

Thanks, Jon,
Kevin

P.S. This has given me the incentive to get my extra class. I been licensed since 1995 and lost interest along the way, but I have regained my interest and will have my extra within a month or two." 

June 2019 Update:
"I’ll be taking my extra test at the upcoming field day!"
All in all, I still like the flagpole and it really shines on 20-meter dx. With 600 watts I can talk all over especially into Europe. 5-9 plus 10db signal reports from most contacts. With 10 meters opening up a little lately I’ve been using the flagpole there for short skip generally 500 - 800 miles. I also use it on 6 meter FM for local repeaters. It tunes and works there quite well. The main reason I like it is it doesn’t look like an antenna and my wife likes it as well when the flag is flying! 

Let's rekindle your passion for the radio waves and get you back on the air too!

  • I installed the 20 foot Flagpole antenna in July. I had difficulty with connectors which I solved. It worked all bands, but the MFJ tuner failed 2 days after I had it working. It is still at MFJ getting a warranty repair (6+ weeks so far). Presently it is resonant on 20 meters and will tune 30 meters and 17 meters with only the Radio tuner. It is a beautiful Flagpole. I Keep it lighted at night. No complaints about appearance from the neighbors. I am regularly working Europe, South America. Africa and all of US with 60 watts on FT8 and CW. I have been able to work SSB contacts in Europe and South America on 20 meters as well. The antenna is an ideal solution for Hams in HOA communities. There are plenty of 20 foot flagpoles in my neighborhood. There is a code for them in the HOA handbook and our city Code as well. It meets all the requirements. It is a sturdy structure and looks like any other flagpole from 30 feet away or more. (Only difference is the bolts and the tuner). I have built a landscape block circle with 4 rows of stone. This effectively hides the tuner and balun at the base. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do HF and lives in a restricted community. Andy WJ8B
