Anyone have a KLM 2M-14C Antenna on the ground - or at an easily accessed height?
I need the overall width of the folded dipole driven element (it'll be around 950mm) and also the
distance between the holes where the 8-32 by 1" screws secure the element free ends to the
PCB/antenna boom support insulator.
A coax tangle up has left me with the elements bent battered and broken and whilst I have the
spacing between the two folded tubes ( 49mm C to C) from the wreckage and can fold up new
elements I need the other info. to do so.
(The XYL does not approve of my hanging my "three score and ten (+) year old " bones off the end
off a safety harness more often than absolutely necessary! A 'one trip' up the mast - to fit the new -
would be good!)
