I'm a complete newbe so please bear with me as I probably won't use correct terminology. I am setting up a G5RV, 102' and need to invert it, probably with my center pole about 45' and outer poles 20', is that acceptable. I live in E. Tn. 30 minutes east of Knoxville. I have 3 acres but it isn't level and I have trees to deal with. About the only angle I can erect the antenna is west southwest to east northeast. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, that should work. Lots of people put up G5RVs (and other dipoles) in inverted-vee configuration like you want to.

Not having it straight may change the feedpoint impedance a little, but I wouldn't worry about it.

W0BTU, Thanks for the reply. Not sure but may be able to set it straight after all. Will have it worked out in a couple of weeks. 1Bear

I don't want to be a nuisance but need to ask another question. I will be able to mount the G5RV as a flattop after all,but will need to be parallel to my 75/80 meter inverted V antenna, about 10' to the side. Would that be okay? Thanks, James
