Have you phoned/emailed Thunderpole to ask for some?

Length: 21.5 feet or there about
usually if the length is around that and you have it in the air it should be close to what you need
each section fits in to each other and the three ground planes fit on the bottom as per picture on web site

Jeez...did they gold-plate it for you at the same time? ;)

Glad you got it sorted though, but boy were those missing instructions expensive.

It's always annoying when you have to shell out for something like that when you could possibly do it on your own but for your disability.

In the old days there was a fair bit of cameraderie between fellow CB'ers, but as they're few and usually VERY far between nowadays, it's not as easy to get a few "airwave-mates" around to give you a hand hoiking an aerial up for the price of a cuppa and a chat.

I hope you're enjoying the airwaves though, that's the main thing. I heard an Italian coming through nice and clearly on mid-block FM today when I popped home for lunch and switched my homebase on to listen to while I was soldering a mic' plug. He was certainly riding the skip, so there's a few contacts to be had ;)

Your list is impressive, although well short of my 100+ crappy UKFM radios lol (yours are probably worth 20 times more already though ;) )
