Last fall I stopped by a moving sale about 3 miles from house. I
immediately spotted the Drake B Line. It was over priced but I bought a
Radio Shack 440 Ht for $15. In talking with the ham, who was moving to
Florida, he gave me a Hy-Gain VB64DX and 2 Hy-Gain VB-66DX Yagis as well as
various push up poles and VHF verticals. Anyway the yagis are missing a few
parts, and lot of elements were trashed from a tornado.
Anyway, to my question. I want to rebuild the 4 element and put it up
around 20 or 30 feet this spring. There are some differences between one of
the 6 elements and the other 6 and the 4 element. One of the 6 elements has
bigger element to boom brackets and a short 7 " or so element that
transitions to the smaller diameter. The other 6 and the 4 element have
smaller element to boom brackets and single piece elements of the smaller
I downloaded the manual from the Hy-Gain site and it shows dimensions for
the one with the larger brackets etc. I assume they changed the design to
make them more reliable.
Anybody have a copy of an older manual that has the single size element
Thanks in advance.
