Also, when tightening down the stainless steel clamps you have to be careful to not over tighten and strip the threads.
A thin film of aluminum oxide apparently forms on occasion but is “scrubbed” by vibration causing the variations in electrical conductivity. Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review. It has survived a cross country move, and 5 Iowa winters. I’m not sure if I’m going to bother trying to fix the top trap again. The antenna had two bad traps and was only working on two bands – 10 and 12 meters.
I have nothing but good things to say about this antenna. LOCATION Although the R will operate in almost any location, it will perform best if it is mounted vertically and located in the clear away from surrounding objects such as buildings, trees, power lines, towers, guy wires, antennas and metallic objects. The trap design is pretty unique with two traps in each “can”. Measure twice, adjust once. I had to bore out the holes to use my pop rivet tool to reattach the wire for rewinding the traps.
All the other bands above 20 are also flat. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager. Tighten the corresponding ring Tunes every band of operation with the TS internal tuner.

I drilled out the pop rivet and used a screw with a lock washer on both sides to reattach the metal part of the capacitive device. CT1 I think has the trap that also has a capacitive device that is shielded from the outer can wall by some hard foam or plastic type material. If you’d like me to do it for mmanual, email me and maybe we can work somthing out. Don’t get me wrong, as soon as things come around I want a tribander.
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. When I couldn’t rotate the connection with significant effort, I stopped tightening. I have cushraft connection to the manufacturer but it ain’t junk!!

Today, I finally gave up and removed the top trap and it’s four extra feet of tubing. I used sealent on the tops and around the sides of the rubber at the top of all the traps to prevent water from getting down into the traps. Verticals; Wire; Cushcravt Cushcraft R
