Hi all,

I recently purchased a powered monopole that came with an antenna, it has 6 elements 2 each on 10,15 and 20 the boom is in three sections there are no traps, the antenna is all riveted and only the 20m element is driven, one thing is the brackets to mount the elements to the boom are well made and are u shaped and also riveted to the boom.
The elements are mounted in a plastic sleeve and then mount on the brackets.
the boom is only around 12'.
I do not know how to post photo's in this forum (some help?) but I can email some.
Please some assistance.

I suspect this is a Force12 C3S. The rivets, the 12-foot boom, and the inductive loading are what I am basing this on.

I have one - it is mechanically solid and decent electrically for its size and cost. Look it up on their website, and good luck!

Thanks!

I managed to send a couple of photos to Force 12 and they sent me the manual, considering what I paid for the tower and antenna I got a great deal!

Have a great day!
