DUAL DDRR C0-Phased Citizens Band HF Antenna Array

Barracuda-Base-Antennas

In layman’s terms a DDRR is just a short vertical monopole (vertical post) attached to a transmission line tuned by a reactance (ring plus vacuum capacitor). The reactance of the capacitor is transformed by the transmission line and will under specific conditions (length, value of the capacitor, etc.) make the vertical post resonant. Slight variations of the capacitor will lengthen or make the transmission line “shorter” and allow tuning of the antenna on a certain range.

Stoner Pro-40 #322 SSB CB Radio Base Station

CB Stoner-Pro-40-1

As I own quite a few CPI CB Radio’s I decided I had better get a Stoner Pro40 to compare them as the internal PCB’s and components are very similar from photo’s I have seen.
I took a big chance on this one, # 322 (Which I like as my Postcode is 3223) but glad I did as it is as close to perfect condition as you will get in a 1978 model cb radio base station from the USA. Continue reading Stoner Pro-40 #322 SSB CB Radio Base Station
