We are trying to identify just what this yagi is of a recent SK.
Took a few pictures of it the other day and have this description:

We are still trying to help find someone who is interested in Fred's
(W2UB) tower and beam.  So far we haven't been able to determine the
make and model of the beam.  Please check out the attached pictures and
let me know if you recognize it.  There appear to be some sort of "V"
shaped rods connecting each side of the 'second' element to the
corresponding side of the 'fourth' element.

It should become available in the spring, along with the tower. Anyone recognize just what it is?

As a bonus question, anyone know who made the tower? I know what it is and it supposedly doesn't exist as the company claims they never made crankup towers, but they did as their name is on the crank/pulley assembly. (the SK had two of these towers, but one came down in high winds last spring and we've already cut it up and removed it for scrap)
