It sure is a small world!  Yes, that was one of my C19XR's that I replaced
with a C31XR stack.  Norm purchased it from me a long time ago and he told
me he sold it after a problem with a storm and his tower.

I did the C19XR, C31XR C39XRN and co-designed the C49XR which was a
mechanical challenge.  Have fun with the C19XR as it is a good basic
antenna.  I think I replaced the original wires that run between the 10 and
20 meter drivers with the newer closed sleeve.

Thanks for the information!

Interesting story on this C19XR,
I picked it up from a ham in Odessa, NY,
W2AD, who moved to AZ.,very recently.
I'm almost positive he said he got it from a W6
who lived up the road a ways in NY,
and had actually designed this antenna.
I just noticed Your Freeville, NY., QTH,
I'm wondering if you are the W6 he was referring to??
If so, It looks like I have one of the 1st C19XR's
and, I'm glad to say, after some "polishing" up,and
re-riviting...looks just as good as true
testament to the build quality of
the force12 line...
Thought you might be interested in this info... :)
Again, thanks for the help and advice...
