Its been quite a while since Ive posted here....
Ive been lurking again for the last few weeks.
hope all is well for you...
In the early 90's I purchased a M2 440 CP antenna
from a neighbor using it for AO-10. I was planning to
use it with AO-40... well that didnt happen...
If anyone is interested in purchasing this antenna it is available.
It has been in the barn all these years and I realize I probably
wont get to setting it up. I would really like to see someone get
the intended use out of it. It is about 20 feet long currently in 2 ~10ft.
I thought it was a 44 element.... I see M2 does 42 element now.. so Id have to
Somewhere I have the paperwork on it but I cant guarantee I can find it.
It is set up I think for RHCP but you could change that ... it does not
have the remote switching capability. You would have to do it manually
or get a switch to do it from the shack.
Incidentally, I have a bunch of other stuff as well... like silver N connectors
and other stuff as well. Although my Kenpro az/el and FT-736 2M, 220, 440, 1.2
is long gone
I do have some other stuff that can go.
If someone is interested, I will be glad to take detailed pictures and email
I really am not interested in disassembling the antenna so I hope it could be
but I can look at it and see if I can get it down to 4 x 5 ft sections (I think
it will) but I would
not want to remove each element as if you are familiar with these Im sure you
I am near Syracuse, NY USA.
