A while back, I requested help on searching out some junked ground plane
rod assemblies. Thanks to Henry Pollock, K4TMC, I now know the specific
item I used and could use more of. They are the two piece ground plane
rod assemblies that went with the Antenna Specialist/Decibel Products CB
ground plane antenna (ASPA2010). Henry sent me a set, but I could use a
few more for experiments. They consist of a 5/16 rod and a 3/16, with a
coupling that might take a little liquid wrench and gentle force to
separate if they have been together very long.
AS wants to sell entire antennas, not the pieces. At $169 for the antenna,
this is not a practical way to go. Hence, I need an alternate source, if
that is possible.
a. If anyone knows how to get replacement assemblies inexpensively, the
info would be of great help. Insider assitance accepted with gratitutde.
b. If anyone has the ground rod parts from a now defunct version of the
antenna in question in storage, I would be glad to pay shipping plus some
fair small fee for them. They can be separated and them wrapped for UPS
To add a sense of mystery to this, they are for my "beam-in-a-boom"
design project, which otherwise shows good promise for 10-meter
hilltopping from trunk to signal in under 10 minutes.
Thanks in advance.
