A thin film of aluminum oxide apparently forms on occasion but is “scrubbed” by vibration causing the variations in electrical conductivity. Enter text from picture: The previous review not withstanding, I use this antenna camping and I’ve had amazing results, easily working Europe when Propagation is good The r will do till then.

The R is a good antenna as far as verticals go, but it needs some help. I used sealent on the tops and around the sides of the rubber r7000 the top of all the traps to prevent water from getting down into the traps.
If, in the judgement of Cushcraft, any such antenna is defective, then Cushcraft Corporation will, at its option, repair or replace the antenna at its expense within thirty days of the date the antenna is returned at purchasers expense to Cushcraft or one of its authorized representatives.

Cushcraft MN 7 Band Vertical Any info or Manuals?!!! | QRZ Forums
SWRs are below 2: I had to bore out the holes to use my pop rivet tool to reattach the wire for rewinding the traps. The metal part of that device slides into into it and is held in place by a pop rivet that was very loose.
Also, the aluminum wire that was used to wind the coil was in bad shape and looked like it had arc’d just below where it exits and attaches to the outside of the can.
Contact the site with comments or questions. LOCATION Although the R will operate in almost any location, it will perform best if it is mounted vertically and located in the clear away from surrounding objects such as buildings, trees, power lines, towers, guy wires, antennas and metallic objects. I rewound CT2 with 12 awg solid copper wire. I have no connection to the manufacturer but it ain’t junk!! What I did to ensure I had a tight fit was wait for the moment that turning it down became harder and then tried to rotate the sections with my hand.
I have nothing but good things cuhscraft say about this antenna.
A connector boot is included for use with your new antenna figure I. The shortest length of cable will have the least loss. Bottom line is that from now on I’m going to stick with monoband verticals manuaal traps.
I’m not sure if I’m going to bother trying to fix the top trap again.
Drilling out a dimple in the wall of the trap “can” manua, allow you to remove the delrin spacer and get to the guts. Don’t have an account?

Anyway, it has served me well everywhere. Over tightening will simply loosen the connection and cause the antenna to detune by sliding down into itself while it’s up in the air. The antenna now works better than ever. The trap design amnual pretty unique with two traps in each “can”. If you have “fluttering” SWR, it is probably being caused by wind induced vibrations in the internals of one or more traps.
I finally got time to take each trap apart to see what the issues were if any. Got it, continue to print. By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page. It is outperforming the dipoles that I have in my attic. Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review. I worked 3Y0X on it on both 40 and 20 with watts. I bought this used 9 years ago.
I’ve had the antenna up for years. Comments to this Manuals Your Name.
