Customer Reviews for the AV-14AVQ.

From: John Pumphrey WF5I
I received the antenna and promptly began to assemble it. It took about 30 minutes or less to get it fully assembled. I drove a 1.25" pipe into ground along with a ground rod 3" away. I installed 60 radials 33 feet long around the base of the antenna. When I checked the antenna on 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters it checked better than 1.5 to 1 on the mid band measurements given in the instructions. Saturday morning I thought I would give it a try. With just 100 watts I worked 41 different countries. I worked from Japan to Ukraine from Hungry to Australia, from the Czech Republic to Hawaii. I was very impressed. I was even able to work countries I could hardly hear. So far the antenna is performing very well and for the price it is worth taking a look at.

I have just got my station up and running after 15 years off the HF bands. Not having much room for antennas I tried a Slinky antenna and it did not work. A few years ago I bought a AV-14AVQ vertical antenna but never installed it.
I still had this antenna and dug it out to use it. At the old QTH I had a three band trap beam and a dipole, so did not need the vertical.
I drove a three foot long piece of 1 1/4 inch galvanized water pipe into the ground and a ground rod 4 inches from it. Ran the RG8AU under ground through a 1 inch PVC pipe to the radio shack. Now only have two radials installed 20 feet long. I intend to install more when I get around to it.
The HF bands have not been very good but I have worked several states including Hawaii and Alaska and some South American countries. This is a great vertical antenna and I would recommend it to any ham. My ham friend in Lake Havasu City, AZ just bought one after I told him about this one; to go with his new Kenwood station.

The hardest part was measuring and installing the radial wires. I installed them on the antenna before boosting it up. The wires in this kit serve as part of the antenna and to guy it down to the roof. I also put guy ropes 1/2 up the antenna. I ended up with wires and ropes all over the roof but the SWR came out less than 1:5 across the bands. I measured mine using the mid band deminsions. Great antenna
