I have one, but it's on the end of a 100' of 1/2". For that price I'll
throw in the Heliax.
Actually as I'm feeling charitable, for 1/2 that price I'll still throw
in the coax if you come and pick it up<:-)) I don't remember if there's
one on the other end or if it even has a connector. I'll have to go
look. I do remember I gave away 100' of 1/2" Heliax with those on both
ends. I don't think he's put it up yet. I could probably get it back
and let you have all three, plus two, 100' pieces of 1/2" for
$1500...and even that would be negotiable.
