I have a Bandhopper mobile manual tune antenna.
The manufacturer passed away a few years ago and the antennas are no longer made.

I am looking for the values of the capacitors that are used in line with the antenna as I have lost my 40 Meter cap.
If anyone has the values of all three, I would be real happy to get them.

Thanks.

I wouldn't match the antenna with a cap. Rather, a shunt coil, once adjusted correctly, will suffice for 80 through 10 without further adjustment.
