It looks like the company is still in business but with a new name and business plan.

Did anyone purchase the rights, parts, inventory, etc of the Amateur / CB end of the company? I was thinking that MFJ bought them out but turns out that was the Cushcraft Co.

Hi Ed,

There has been a big buyout/merger of antenna companies many years ago.  It boils down to a company called Allen Telecom, Inc., that purchased Antenna Specialists, DB Products, Andrew Corporation, and PCTEL.  The familiar line of Antenna Specialists mobile products is now carried by PCTEL, Inc.  They're at www.antenna.pctel.com.  It's a crazy mixed up world.

Hi,

I believe Allen Telecom was merged into Andrew Corp, then
Andrew was merged with CommScope.
The Carlyle Group acquired CommScope in 2011 for $3.9 billion.

PCTEL is PCTI on the NASDAQ.

mergers, acquisitions, spinoffs, I can't keep up with this stuff anymore!

James and Mike, thanks for the reply, I do appreciate it.

Basically what I gather is that NOW there is no place, either physical brick & mortar or via the magic of the internet, that one would be able to gather spare parts and/or printed support information.

Was hoping that I could restore a A/S M-!!3(Huh from memory) with new parts just like I was able to purchase a new 20 meter trap for my 4BTV
