It is outperforming the dipoles that I have in my attic.
If you live in an area that is dry and not to windy then, perhaps, otherwise I would try something else. The R is a good antenna as far as verticals go, but it needs some help. I’ve been a ham for 45 years and know antennas somewhat and I had doubts about this too, but the damn thing works!!!
Cushcraft Amateur Radio Antennas
I have nothing but good things to say about this antenna. Today, I finally gave up and removed the top trap and it’s four extra feet of tubing. SWRs are below 2: When I couldn’t rotate the connection with significant effort, I stopped tightening. Specifications Cushcraft Corporation, P. Got it, continue to print. I’ll have it fixed this weekend.
The shortest length of cable will have the least loss. Have use don cw and ssb.
It does not mean that the RF path is short circuited. The metal part of that device slides into into it and is held in place by a pop rivet that manuual very loose. Also, I used “Antiseize” on all aluminum connections before sliding the antenna back together. The capacitors are formed by the outer shell of the can and a coaxial piece of tubing pop-riveted to the structural tubing on each end of the trap.

The trap design is pretty unique with two traps in each “can”. The previous review not withstanding, I use this antenna camping and I’ve had amazing results, easily working Europe when Propagation is good 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 cushxraft.

I had to bore out the holes to use my pop rivet tool to reattach the wire for rewinding the traps. Slide BD over CT1 top tube 2″ and secure worm clamp.
Cushcraft MN-7000 7 Band Vertical Any info or Manuals?!!!
Place worm clamps r7000 each end of section BD. I used new hex screws to replace the crappy ones that the antenna came with. If you have “fluttering” SWR, it is probably being caused by wind induced vibrations in the internals of one or more traps.
