I’m thinking if I got a Diamond CP6 instead of my army big stick would it be a good solution, and would I still be ok to use it on 11 meters? I don’t. The CP6 multi-band trap-vertical antenna for HF bands, covering the 80*, 40*, 20, 15, 10 and 6m amateur bands. Made from heavy duty aluminum, the CP6A.

In all I found it the most lacklustre antenna I’ve owned and subsequently took it down after a week. Shopping Cart – 0 Item. Please, log in or register.

Diamond CP-6S from the UK’s official importer, Waters & Stanton

I’m starting to notice problems with my radio not being able to TX full power. Now the price may be high due to large profits by the UK dealers, or maybe it is expensive from Diamond, but either way allowing for the quality and price it can only have a zero rating, comparing it with other makes like diamodn TH3Jnr, which at 30 years old is still good.

These breaks were basically down to bad design and construction of the trap. Only registered users can write reviews. Voorbeeld is zo een HyEndFed en dan met een co6 verticaal monteren.

If you are looking for a good 6 band vertical that is easy to install, holds up well in adverse weather and performs well, this is an antenna to consider. You have no items in your shopping cart.

I use a RigExpert AA Pro to tune it to the portion of the band I will normally work and the antenna then just performs By the way years ago I experimented with attic antennas as well.

I’ve currently got an old school Shakespeare Army Big Stick up just now for 11 meters and it works quite well. They work well and will get you some good Dlamond but don’t expect to break the pileups with it. The quality is appalling, and it is worth about a third of the selling price.

Will have to look into this to find out what the problem is. Best antenna I have ever used and costs peanuts. Had a complete 3 element inv-V beam made just below the roof pointed west.

I have also been through several typhoons and the antenna has survived very well. After repair it lasted a bit longer, but the plastic inside the trap is soft, and eventually it failed again, but the more holes you add for more repairs, the weaker duamond gets. I only had it for just over a year before I moved.


Like you I found it poor on 40m and worthless on 80m. You can adjust the antenna for each band. Daimond a useless heap of scrap. Thanks for your comment. It doesn’t have to be vertical really but I think if I had one diamons multiband antenna that would cover HF including 11 meters I’m less likely to attract attention from the powers that be.
