Why Cantex ?

Why Cantex ?

Their material is UV-stabilized for weathering strength in the changing climate of Northern Ohio. It also machines and drills consistently. The dielectric constant is the same from piece to piece, and the Cantex compound resists bending. I've filled a dumpster with look-alike parts that failed to survive the coiling process at some point.

A new vertical antenna.

Today a new 10 footer went up, wound with 1/16 inch aluminum wire. The 5356 alloy winds consistently, as shown below. Winding time was approximately 4 hours.

The finished vertical antenna has continuous coil of 1025 feet of wire !
