Wanted:...Super scanner CB antenna...The antenna was made by Antenna Specialist who are still in business and may still produce the Super Scanner. This antenna beams into three quadrants without the use of a rotator. By using relays, a single feed line could be switched to 1 of 3 elements or to all for an omni position.The coax jumpers made the other 2 unactive elements appear to be longer and act as reflectors. Later versions grounded the inactive elements through a tuned capacitance/inductance circuit...Steven Duemey...KD7RUF..Please e mail to jackinariz@webtv.net...Thanks.

If you intend to use this antenna on 10 meters, you have a lot of work to do. The phasing stubs (tuning sections if you please) have to be changed along with the element lengths.

Once upon a time, AS advertized a 10 meter version, but to my knowledge never shipped any. And from my experience selling these little beauties, they won't take much power, and certainly not amateur legal limits. You'd be better off making a two element one yourself.

Incidentally, the front to back was just 6db (one S unit) and the forward gain was 5dbi (one half an S unit). Not too swift in my book.
