    THIS IS MY 27 OR SO YEAR OLD ANTENNA HAS NO BRAND NAME JUST A STICK ! THE SUPPORT I PUT ON IT IS A NESCAFE coffee lid with a hole in the center and 4 outside holes for the shark line to attach too. Yes fishing line, very thick but still fishing line...
    With this set up on 20 foot of box Chanel I have spoken to so many different places .. but retirement is coming for it. . 351

    It's looking like tomorrow 996 for the big test run, I'm hoping for the replacement antenna matcher get hear tomorrow, the new switches will arrive tomorrow in there 2day overnight bag (only overnight from city to city) so panel could get finished tomorrow.. then the new antenna , pole, and coax go up mid week as they arrive .. welding pole's up on weekend.... Still Hate the waiting game, trying to make some extra cash so I can buy that 505v... ! That will top it off nicely... 351... :-)
