Princeton G5RV Antenna
Overland Park, KS 66204
Pricing & Orders
The G5RV antenna is a unique all band antenna. It
consists of a 102 foot flat top
plus 34 feet of 450ohm 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
and can not contact the earth or run parallel to metallic objects.
Coax is attached
at the end of the ladder line. Most modern radios with an internal
can accommodate this antenna and provide a good match on all bands from
EXCEPT the 30M band.

The 1985 Navassa Island DX-pedition Team invited
Bob Heil to design an ultra-lightweight headset, one with a
boom mic that would really cut through the QRM. The BM-10
was the result of that project; over twenty years later, it
has been improved. This new BM-10-6 has the new HC-6 element in it and has been
in design and tested on the air for an additional two years to perfect it.

Heil Foot switch
The Heil FS-2 is a unique product specially designed for
controlling two devices simultaneously. A typical
application would be to key a transceiver with the BLACK
lead and an RF power amplifier with the RED lead. Because of
the design architecture, the micro-switch controlling the
RED lead keys up first as the foot switch is depressed, thus
the RED lead turns on before the BLACK lead thus insuring
that the amplifier is keyed first before drive is applied
from the transceiver that keys up last in the sequence.

Handi mic PRO dash mount
For years, Bob Heil has been working on a
solution to an all-too-common problem in today's
mobile rigs: muffled, hollow-sounding audio.
With the introduction of the Handi Mic, the
solution is at hand!
