Over the last few decades, the G5RV antenna has become one of the most popular and widely used "all around" multi-band antennas in the world. Even though it is a "compromise" antenna, it has good overall performance on most hf ham bands when used with an external tuner, and allows coax as an entry feedline to the radio equipment eliminating the need and hassle of ladder line or twin lead. It should be noted that some internal tuners just don't have enough range to "tune" it.
The interaction between the radiating section and the feed stub makes the G5RV usually easy to match on all bands from 80 through 10 meters with an ordinary low-cost antenna tuner.
In spite of its small size, it provides "almost" dipole equivalent coverage on 80 and 40 meters. From 20 on it favours DX with four to six low-angle lobes reaching out in all directions which makes it a very popular antenna on the higher frequency bands. Many hams swear by them and many swear AT them due to tuning difficulties that some have,
