I picked this up today for $30. (hope I did good) I was told it's a Ringo Ranger antenna but I don't see any markings on it, other than the coax does say "Cushcraft" which I have read is the maker of Ringo antennas. I had to add in a 5 ft. TV antenna pole between the main antenna and the vertical ground plane. I found out the connector on the ground plane is jacked up. Some idiot cross threaded the connector on at one point so the threads on the tip are messed up. Maybe I can score this connector really cheap? Or is it imperative there needs to be a coax connected between the horizontal ground plane and the main portion of the antenna? Anyways please view the pics and advise. Thanks in advance.
