Dear All,
Believe W9INN is SK. I need to contact the firm, If still in existance, re the purchase of above dipole. Yahoo and google gave me lots of links but none to a company or details of the above antenna to homebrew bar that it's 42' long and has excellent reviews on this site.
Please anybody, have you perhaps the URL needed OR the details pertaining to the construction of this dipole? All help gratefully accepted.

I had a W9INN antenna some years ago, it was a real good performer.

Unfortunatly Bill never had a web site and I had heard that his business ceased to exist.  

It is a shame that the antennas are no longer available as his products filled a niche market.

W9INN is now a SK and the family has no plans to continue the business. It would be nice if we could duplcate some of his antennas. I was getting ready to order when he passed away.

W9INN indeed has passed on and his family has not continued the business.  This antenna is not available, at all.

The Alpha-Delta "DX-EE" is similar, and actually better, for 10-15-20-40 meters; however it does not cover 80 meters.  But the DX-EE is also short, and the same length as the SSD5-42 was.
