I'm putting together a used F12 antenna here. I have a manual, it covers the C3 and C3D.
As I'm putting it together, I see that I have an extra element, so, I have either a C3E or a C4 and my manual doesn't cover what I have.
The boom is engraved with the following (from the back to the front):
15m rear dir
20m driver - feedpoint
10m front driver
Any help on a manual for this or if it's a C3E or C4? Anyone have a manual or can point me to one? I'd even call and get the element dims on the phone if possible. Thought I was going to get this on the sidemount tonight but I need to see what it is I really have.

Subject: [TowerTalk] NEW TOOL
I make cable assemblies every day for customers
and I also have arthritis in my hands. After a
day of making cables, my hands hurt.
Here's a new tool from DX Engineering I like very much!
From their web page:
Originally introduced as the DXE-UT-80TN at
Hamvention® 2008, this assembly tool allows
simple threading of PL-259 sleeve onto the vinyl
jacket of RG-8/U, RG-213/U, LMR-400 and other similar size cables.
First strip the cable.
Then, use this simple hand-gripped tool - forget
about those pliers that scarred the connector and
ripped off chunks of metal - and thread the
connector body onto the stripped cable end. A
visual guide at the end allows easy viewing of
the cable center conductor for proper depth of installation.
This tool allows a perfect and easy connector installation every time!

I give this new tool a thumbs up.
