What To Expect with your DX Flagpole Vertical Dipole Antenna
Welcome to Greyline Performance
Home of the DX Flagpole Antenna
COVID-19 Update: April 2020
Status: Actively building and shipping from Idaho, USA.
After several weeks of quarantine within our ranks, we are building and shipping antennas. Luckily, we are in a location that allows us to get back to work.
We do appreciate the outpouring of support during this time. Our global fraternity really is a solid bunch that sticks together.
On that note, we too are loyal to and focused on sourcing our materials from amateur radio owned small businesses. Hearing about small mom and pop owned shops that do great work gets our attention and during this time when so many need our collective support, we are patient to stick with them while they provide services for us all. On top of this, we are careful to select only the best premium grade materials, Made in the USA.
We are ramping up production and expect to get ahead of the waiting list that has developed. We expect to hear many more happy hams on the bands very soon with their DX Flagpole Antennas.
Note: Reserving your antenna secures a buyers position in the production line for the following shipment. This will be the routine until we return to same/next day shipping asap. We are authorizng payments at the time of order and capturing payment at the time of shipment. Tracking is generated at that time as well. Thanks for your graciousness and patience and please be safe out there.
- Greyline Team
We are honored to serve you with a smart design and stronger engineering option for your all-band radio antenna needs.
We realize not everyone can (or wants to!) put up a tower or plant 120 radials in the ground to achieve a respectable signal on the bands.

But don't take our word for it, read what many customers using the antenna on the air are saying in our FAQ, here.
In an HOA, space restricted or deed restricted community, or simply need an aesthetically pleasing free-standing, high performance, extremely low-loss multiband HF vertical dipole that covers *160-6M? We may have the answer. Yes, really, read more here.

COVID-19: During COVID, we may or may not experience extra delay. This may be due to a vendor in a lockdown location working a little slower than normal. We don't foresee delays as routine with several suppliers for our various components. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Important note on Stock + Ham Radio focused Small Business Partners:
At times, we have racks full and antennas ready to ship, other times we are awaiting a delivery of custom made parts to finalize a batch of orders.
This is the Amateur Supply Chain and we are loyal to our small business vendors and friends. That said, we do see steady improvements with our partners and we are committed to refining our process and efficiency alongside them. Thank you for your understanding.
We are ham radio operators, contesters, and DXers just like you are. We know getting your antenna on the air as soon as possible is of the utmost importance for most of you. It sure is for us! We promise to rush your new Greyline DX Antenna to you anywhere in the world! (like one radio operator who just took his DX Flagpole to Afghanistan!)

Just as much fun for us (and maybe you too) we enjoy tinkering with our designs for improvements and then present these various challenges faced and overcome, many times with the wisdom and input of our valuable customer's and peers.
We include various topics from where best to plant your antenna and what performance measures you should expect in many situations. Measured and tested by us and our customers too in some cases. Read more about these and more, here:
