Yes, it’s a compromised antenna but it ain’t junk Place worm clamps over each end of section BD. Drilling out a dimple in the wall of the trap “can” will allow you to remove the cushcfaft spacer and get to the guts. I’ve had the antenna up for years.
Have use don cw and ssb.
The shortest length of cable will have the least loss. It does not mean that the RF path is short circuited.

I wish I had taken photos and written notes, sorry, I didn’t. When I couldn’t rotate the manaul with significant effort, I stopped tightening.
Over tightening will simply loosen the connection and cause the antenna to detune by sliding down into itself while it’s up in the air. Again, if you have one of these and need instructions, email me.

By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page. Even a great antenna will suffer in poor conditions but I’m afraid the R is more susceptible to the weather out here on the Pacific Coast of Washington than most. Slide BD over CT1 top tube 2″ and secure worm clamp. Before you pull out our last remaining hair, you might give this a try. The R should not be attached to a ground radial system. I used new hex screws to replace the crappy ones that the antenna came with.
What I did to ensure I had a tight fit was wait for the moment that turning it down became harder and then tried to cusshcraft the sections with my hand.
I’m not sure if I’m going to bother trying to fix the top trap again. I don’t operate 30 so that’s not been an issue. I have no connection to the manufacturer but it ain’t junk!!
A thin film of aluminum oxide apparently forms on occasion but is “scrubbed” by vibration causing rr7000 variations in electrical conductivity. The antenna had two bad traps and was only working on two bands – 10 and 12 meters. Don’t get me wrong, as soon as things come around I want a tribander.

I have nothing but good things to say about this antenna. The antenna now works better than ever. I used sealent on the tops cusgcraft around the sides of the rubber at the top of all the traps to prevent water from getting down into the traps.
I worked 3Y0X on it on both 40 and 20 with watts. I snipped off the sharp ends because I was afraid that it may screw in too close to the center rod of the trap and arc. I finally got time to take each trap apart to see what the issues were if any.
Cushcratt any of you have this antenna and are afraid to go into them, email me and I’ll give cushcrwft detailed steps on how to do it – it’s easy.
