Wilson System 3 / System 33 Tribander

(1/1)

George McCouch:
Hello,

I have an old Wilson System 3 tribander beam that has been up for about 20 years. It still works well but is coming down for a clean up and some hardware replacement. This antenna was known as Wilson SY-3, System-3, and I believe SY-33, or System-33.

I am in need of a manual for it as I seem to have lost mine over the years. I do not need the assembly instructions, just the critical element lengths.  Any help with this would be most appreciated.

Thanks
George

Send an email to Pete, WA2CWA.  Pete runs one of those antennas, and I know that he has the information you need because I just helped in locate some parts to repair it.

Pete's email address is manualman@juno.com

The old Wilson System 33 was a very good 3 band yagi. Here is a link to the manual, and also notice that Jim Wilson chose to furnish the trap information, so you can rebuild them, if needed.
