Windcamp Gipsy Multiband (5Mhz - 50Mhz) Coil Dipole Portable HF Antenna5-840-003
Get ready for Field Day with the Windcamp Gipsy multi band coil dipole and work 5Mhz - 50Mhz!
This is a full-sized half-wavelength horizontal dipole antenna specially designed for field day, and can be erected in horizontal, inverse V, cable-stayed or even vertical.
The resonant frequency can be flexibly changed in the range of 5-50MHz by rolling the elements on the reel to the pre-set markings for each band. 9 amateur radio bands 5 / 7 / 10 / 14 / 18 / 21 / 24 / 28(29) / 50MHz are marked as resonance points to facilitate fast and accurate switching of frequencies.
Approximate Lengths (with extended left and right arms):
- 50 MHz (6M Band) - 2.1m long
- 28(29) MHz (10M Band) - 4.2m long
- 24 MHz (12M WARC Band) - 5m long
- 21 MHz (15M Band) - 6.2m long
- 18 MHz (17M WARC Band) - 7.4m long
- 14 MHz (20M Band) - 9.4m long
- 10 MHz (30M Band) - 13.4m long
- 7 MHz (40M Band) - 19.4m long
- 5MHz (60M Band) - 25.8m long

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will this work for a cb ? Or 10 m ham?
Yes, the antenna can be used on those frequencies as they fall within the specifications of the antenna.

What is the difference between the windcamp antennas
The WA-4 is rated 7-50Mhz, where the Gipsy is rated 7-30Mhz.
Hi, Which is correct, the heading above tells us that this is a gipsy antenna, 5 to 50 Mg. in your answer to the second question below you say that the Gipsy is 7 to 30 Mg. Also, what is the total length of the gypsy, I need to know this for installation reasons, if too long it will not fit my location. Cheers,
Windcamp has updated the antenna to now resonate between 5 and 50Mhz, previous versions of the antenna were 7-30Mhz. The length of the antenna will depend on the band it is being setup for. When configured for 14Mhz it's about 10M long, at 7Mhz about 20M long. I have now published the manufacture stated lengths for all the bands on the product page, you may need to refresh your page to see the changes.
