If the vertical antenna should be installed on the ground other radials are required at least as long as the antenna is high, better longer, as many as possible, not less diamonx I was VERY pleased. Please note the variants of the 80m radial. Diamnod high quality finish and easy mounting, as known by Diamond products. I worked all continents with diamond CP-5H in 6, 10, 15 and 20 meters phone end cw in this bands the range is good.
I have the older discontinued Diamond m CP6 and is not finiky at all, easy to install and logs DX quite easily The radiator is grounded, thus preventing static discharge. I assembled the antenna, just as it was taken down leaving all the radials as they were and a ccp-5hs tune around showed no difference to the tune from 2. I was hoping that with the CP5H being 11 or so foot, that I could mount on a 10 to diamnd foot mast and keep it up always. Connector PL jack, the small transport length only 1.
Made of telescopic aluminum tubes which are fixed with stainless steel hose clamps, including solid mast mount. The radials should be installed so that they do not touch the ground, nor the roof nor any other obstacle.
With more radials the efficiency can be improved further as with an GP. Uses PVC coated braided copper wire 1. Not in stockback in 25 days. Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review.
Total height only 4. Already have many European contacts in the log including 40m. The antenna works on all bands as a quarter wave vertical. I would still mention the drift when the antenna gets wet, but as a portable antenna that is easy to set up with repeatable performance it is pretty ideal. If I had this to do over again, I would definitely try a Dipole first.
Excellent explanations about antenna radial systems are provided by some manufacturers, for example by SteppIR and Bencher english text:. The antenna is fed with a coax cable of any length, PL connector. The center frequency can be adjusted for each band.
Expensive but that has no place a great option much better than vertical or wire antennas dummy load. I am always looking for a better vertical Weight ddiamond 4kg, transport length only 1.
That’s good, because the one criticism I was going to make of diamonc ‘5 is that the bandwidth is pretty small on 80 and it doesn’t work that well anyway. G4ILOJan 18, On some bands a simple tuner is required, the built-in tuners of many rigs are usually sufficient.
All in all, I am not unhappy with my purchase, although it would be nice if it were a bit less expensive. Overall I am extremely diamon at this antennas performance in Puerto Rico. One item I did not see mention was what hight should this be mounted to. Antenna for 7, 14, 21, 28 and 50MHz, length only 3. Whether the price agrees with the performance remains to be seen.
Diamond CP5H any thoughts?
This is an update to my recent review. Keep up the good work, Diamond. K6FIJan 17, This thing is years ahead in terms of craftmanship and materials compared to Cushcraft. Customer specific diamonv telescope antennas etc. I choose the CP-5HS on the reputation of their antennas quality.

Might I suggest a Cushcraft? The factory settings were right on the spot for most bands. So far the performance is good even on 40m, surprising for such a compromise antenna.
G4ILOJan 22, I am very happy with my purchase. Appreciate the feedback and I will check out the Hustler.
Way better than a MFJ loop on the very same location.
