This sale is for an original W6MMA St. Louis Vertical along with a 20-foot Black widow fishing rod. The antenna is perfect for portable operation and includes these elements:
1) 20-foot fiberglass, telescoping, Black-Widow fishing pole that stows to 47.5 inches in length (including plastic base)
2) Ground mounting stake, with W6MMA custom-made PVC pipe to mate with the antenna.
3) Custom-made W6MMA PVC base that attaches to Black-Widow. This unit accepts the coaxial cable, and also mates with the ground stake.
4) Band-selection coil fabricated by W6MMA. This coil slides over the fiberglass pole around one-third of the way up the antenna. it has a brass slider and tap for changing bands.
5) Guy ring fabricated by me. This is a little plastic slip ring that holds light-weight guy ropes.
All in all, a really nice, portable antenna system and a piece of ham radio history.
