Reviews Summary for G Whip Zepp antenna
G Whip Zepp antenna Reviews: 42 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $39.00
Description: The G Whip Zepp antenna is an end fed but with a difference! It incorporates the 1/2 wave length wire radiator and also a G Whip tuned circuit and not the usual matching feeder line counterpoise used on many of the old designs, no baluns, no toroids, no matching transformers, no matching feederline, no resistors, no counterpoise, no radials, no earth, just a perfect tuned match. Nice and easy to turn to get the best signal or to cut the QRM. Each antenna comes complete with it's own sweep and no adjustment is needed. Can be mounted vertically, horizontally or sloping, during tests we found sloping performed the best.
Product is in production.

Simply the best!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have 3 versions of the Standard Resonant Kevlar End Feds; 30M, 20M and 6M. The first two are up permanently at my home QTH and were primarily purchased to replace my old Cushcraft R7000 as I was spending more time trying to tune the R7000 than actually transmitting. The 6M version is a temporary fixture.

Well, I've been using these antennas for a month or so and I've never had such an enjoyable time with radio than now. Installation is easy and the quality of the products are unquestionably the best I've seen. After a small tuning adjustment on both to the JT digimodes I can transmit with a stable SWR in all weathers.

Absolutely delighted and these antennas alone have rekindled my interest in radio, which sadly the R7000 only brought frustration. I can't praise these antennas enough, fantastic!

Check them out if you haven't done so already... oh, and the customer service is as you would expect, absolutely top notch!

Excellent for Foundation Licence (QRP) Low Power  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Having recently obtained my Foundation Licence I wanted to install an antenna that maximised my 10 Watts. Having read the positive reviews of this antenna I purchased one for 20 meters. I have not been disappointed. The build quality is mil spec as advertised and easy to install with full fixing kit provided. How does it work in the real world? Forget 10 Watts. I've been operating 4 Watts (QRP) CW and my first QSO was to Italy, my third over 3,500 miles to the USA. Highly recommended.

Great antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have the 20 m end fed low power (for my FT817).

Outstanding quality and perfect match.
SWR 1 with Z=50 ohm from 14,030 to 14,120 Mhz, and tuning possible with lengthening or shortening the wire.

Very nice for QSO in sloper position with a 10m telescopic fishing pole and the feed point box down, both in portable operation or on my terrace.

Very easy to install, no need of counterpoise or ground.

Good job and highly recommended for efficient antenna with QRP power !

Brilliantly built, great service and resonant so performs well  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have three of these antennas, a main one for 20m, a portable for 20m and QRP for 30m. They are beautifully built, real quality and top class workmanship. Each comes with a SWR sweep of the antenna. The portable 20m and QRP antenna for 30m were custom built by Geoff. He provides great service and communication.

His web site says "you will be back for more" and it is true - I have been back, and will go back again!

Super quality antennas  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I am very happy with these antennas. It is a very good buy. They have many small quality details. Great finished.
I have 20 and 17 meters for 150w and 20, 17 and 15 for QRP.

They are adjusted and work very well.

Great service from Geoff, excellent packaging, first class customer service.

In a feew days Ill order some others and a mobile one.

Highly recommended.

If any EA want to ask me, can write to my email of URE and will reply in Spanish.

Hand build, excellent quality, and resonant across the band.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Have tried a number of different antennas over the years like most hams, looking for that ideal unit or the next best thing.

Came across G-Whip whilst looking for some information or off the shelf products on RF Common Mode Chokes as my new QTH has some QRM issues and as usual was looking to try another antenna or other solution.

G-Whip antennas, and you have a very wide choice to choose from, comes boxed with unbreakable kevlar transmission line and all the necessary components that you need to get it up and working such as; support line plus cable strain relief and fittings which are all stainless steel, top quality IP65 rubber gasket waterproof resin potted box which is carbon loaded and 3.5mm wall thickness, even the lid bolts have seals fitted to them to stop water ingress. Each box is fitted with low loss Teflon/PTFE connectors for coax feeder. Facia board insulator are also included. Ready to go with no required adjustment as each unit is individually hand built and tested. As Geoff states, "on the air in seconds". Every unit comes complete with its own spectrum sweep printout.

Regarding my QRM issues, like most hams your ability to hear weak MF and HF signals is limited by noise, generated mostly by solid-state electronic switches within your own house, conducted via the power line to your shack or from there to your antenna by common-mode current on the feed-line. Putting common-mode chokes on your feed-line will substantially reduce your received noise level. To address these issues, Geoff has produced a number of chokes and some of these are included with his antennas or you can purchase them individually, or have one built to your specification. Just send him an Email.

Cannot get better service than that!

As an ex engineer with over 22 years in the business, I can categorically say the antenna build quality and attention to detail is superb and second to none!

I would highly recommended Geoff's G-Whip products to anybody.

Superb quality antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Previously only a VHF operator, I decided to expand my hobby into HF.
I bought a 40m G Whip end fed about a month ago and installed it within an hour - just attached to the eaves and sloped the wire down towards the ground, no tuning required. Everything is included in the package, down to the mounting bolt and amalgamating tape. My first (ever) HF contact was some 3000 miles away - astounding introduction to ham radio!
I've since been back to see Geoff and purchased a 20m and 10m, and several other bits, and been pleased with every item.
Build quality is second to none, and Geoff is ever helpful with support and advise on his products.
As the website says, once you buy one you'll be back for more.

80 Metre End Fed  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Have a 80 metre version from Geoff for use at my Gower QTH in southern GW on my usually short visits. Ease of install and take down plus decent performance were the priorities.

This antenna exceeded expectations.

SWR - the as built antenna came with a scan which showed SWR centred on 3700 at 1.5:1 with plus or minus 62 kHz to 2.8:1 limits. Mine centred at 3620 at 1.2:1 with about that plus and minus bandwidth. The 80m version is supplied with extra wire coiled around the end insulator, several feet, so the resonant frequency can be adjusted down to the CW end simply by adjusting the position of the end insulator. Measurements on my Elecraft. The antenna was strung from a point on the house at about 25 feet high at the house end to about 6 feet high at the far end insulator end. Just about the only complaint I have is that the length of the antenna was a couple of feet longer than the positioning of the nearest tree in my garden.

First contact using 5 watts from the KX3 was with a G3 some 200 miles away who returned a 57 report with solid copy. I was copying him between 58 and 59 plus a tad at times on the KX3 meter with no preamp in circuit. A 15-20 minute contact with little difficulty followed.

Similar contacts followed. Subjectively the antenna seems to perform much the same as a half wave dipole but without the inconvenience of a long run of coax, at least for general use.

Quality of construction is above average. A lot of thought has gone into the finer details.

I will follow up with a more detailed report in due course. Meanwhile I have acquired a 20 meter end fed from Geoff for use when I am /P in Hong Kong. I will post a report on that version after testing.

Meanwhile I am more than happy with the 80 version.
