Exclamation HY-GAIN 10/12 METER SUPER PENETRATOR 500 5/8 GP BACK IN PRODUCTION!


Great news! Hy-Gain antenna has resumed manufacturing and DxEngineering is now marketing the old reliable 10/12 Meter Super Penetrator 500 5/8 wave ground plane antenna again! I used one of these many years ago on 10 meters with great satisfaction and look forward to purchasing a new one. Don't even remember what happened to my old one, been using a Solarcon A-99 vertical AKA Antron 99 on 10 meters for several years now. This is a great antenna for both ground wave and DX! They are selling new for $149.95 Here's the Link: Hy-Gain Super Penetrator 10/12 meter Vertical Antenna

This topic already covered here, here and here, amongst others.

I already got mine; just need to assemble and erect it. Can't wait.

Already have one which I absolutely love, but it's down for maintenance. Once repaired, it goes back "in stock". Can't have too many Hy-gain Penetrators, ya know!

If they ban this one,.they'd have to ban the V58/5000, I-10K, Enforcer .64, Vector 4000,.etc.

Nah, no worries. It's not being marketed as a CB antenna, so that FTC rule doesn't apply.

FB, Ed! I did notice that the ground plane radial bracket is bent rather than curved. Shouldn't affect the performance though. Ease of manufacturing and fabrication most likely.
