The Princeton G5RV antennas are constructed with #14 stranded, hard drawn copper wire. It consists of a flat top plus a section of 450 ohm ladder line. In this instance, the ladder line is an active part of the antenna and radiates RF. Because of this, it must be fully extended and can not contact the earth or run parallel to metallic objects. Coax (not included) is attached at the end of the ladder line. A broad range automatic tuner such as those made by LDG will provide an excellent match to modern transceivers.
