CCD Antenna For Sale (AS IS)

I have a commercially made 20 Meter CCD antenna, made by CCD Antennas in AZ. As you likely know, they are no longer in business, so these have become very hard to get.

This model served me well until a few weeks ago when a big wind took it down.

The ad says as is because while on side of the dipole is perfect, the other side was bushed by tree branches over time and rubbed off one of the stranded layers of wire in some of the 11 inch sections, (it's either 9 or 11 strands total ) I think if you repaired the break and removed the broken strands, it would be plenty strong.,... but I stretched tight and I was hanging 100 feet of RG-213 and some heavy ferrite beads off it. Apparently too tight, as a big wind broke one of the wires. I think it could just be repaired at the break, or you could replace some of the wire section that frayed.

This has been a great DX antenna. Full wave on 20 meters with 4:1 balun. Claimed 3-5 DB gain over a dipole, lower angle of radiation than a half wave dipole at the same height, very low noise and not effected by touching objects.

$75 plus $7 Priority Mail shipping PayPal preferred, but will hold a personal check until it clears.
