Reviews Summary for Comet CHV-5X Multi Band Rotatable Dipole Antenna
Comet CHV-5X Multi Band Rotatable Dipole Antenna Reviews: 2 Average rating: 4.5/5 MSRP: $319
Description: 5-Band, 1/2 wave rotatable dipole for 40/20/15/10/6 meters!

Compact, lightweight, and easily assembled in either a
horizontal, "V" shape or ground-plane configuration. Each
band tunes independently of the others.

Comet engineers have specifically designed this antenna for
those that desire a milti-band dipole that can be rotated if
needed, but don't have a lot of room to install it.

If you have antenna restrictions, neighbors that tend to
complain about antennas, simply want to operate without
drawing attention...or you want a lightweight multi-band
antenna to use in portable or emergency situations, the CHV-
5X is a great choice.
Product is in production.

Much better than a stick in the eye!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Ok, I've been using this with my Heathkit HW-101 for almost a year now and I've had pretty good results. Yes, it was very difficult to tune those elements for the general bands in 20 & 40 meters. I finally got the SWR down to less than 2.0 from 14.200 (yes I know, I am anticipating my Advanced one day!) to 14.275 MHz and from 7.175 to 7.225 MHz (only part of 40 meters that's usable on the weekends) using the YouKits FG-01. I have worked stations in Hawaii, Japan, Australia, and South America barefoot. I'm a happy Comet customer!

Excellent Compact HF Antenna  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Got this at the Dayton Hamvention in May of 2012. Had just moved into an apartment and needed a small antenna to get back on HF. For what it is it's really great. Setup was very easy. Performance has been great. Many stateside QSO's as well as contacts in Europe and South America so far. Highly recommend this fine product.
