The method of construction and tuning is essentially the same for both antennas but the dimensions are different. The ZS6BKW is a "random length dipole" with ladder line acting as a 1:1 transformer. I prefer to use 450 ohm 18 AWG solid…Introduction. A doublet antenna fed via ladderline from a tuner is a popular solution to the requirement for a low-cost, multiband, HF antenna system. However, a question sometimes arises about losses in the ladderline, and how they change when the line is wet. Wes Stewart, N7WS, carried out measurements on commercial 450Ω line and reported ...I had a W8AMZ ZS6BKW in the trees for about 3 years, and when I brought it down (because of moving) it almost looked the same as it did out of the packaging. It's a fantastic antenna if you can get it up high enough. The W8AMZ antennas were excellently built, and I'm glad to see that continue on. 2The original ZS6BKW article does mention that installed in an inverted-V configuration, resonances would be a little low. After reducing the length of the ladder line to the design figure of 12.2m and tweaking the length of the wires, ending up at 13.5m, the antenna now resonates beautifully on 7.1, 14.11, 18.06 and 24.8 MHz.Describe your experience with the W8AMZ ZS6BKW /G5RV and tell us why you give it the rating you did (required). Other useful information would include your experience with similar products, infomation on a product that you would purchase instead of this one, and so on. Add ReviewThe method of construction and tuning is essentially the same for both antennas but the dimensions are different. Here is the ZS6BKW antenna installed at AK6R fine tuned for the CW/FT8 frequencies on 40-20-17-12-10 meters.

The interaction between the radiating section and the feed-stub makes the G5RV Jr. usually easy to match on all-bands from 40 meters through 6 meters with good antenna tuner.A ZS6BKW needs a good choke balun at the junction of the ladder line and coax, otherwise the coax will become part of the antenna on most bands. An air wound coax balun is a very poor choke and you might look for one with coax wrapped around a ferrite core, which is very effective.looking for W8AMZ Optimized G5RV / ZS6BKW Multi Band Dipole Antenna?
