I recently came across an old Lightning 6 antenna. The wire and the matching system was beyond repair. The boom and the fiberglass spreaders cleaned up good as new. Got all new hardware to put the boom together, sanded and painted the spreaders, and now need to make a decision. I was in touch with George at the new Lightning antennas location, and I can still get the element kit and matching network. All the wires are premeasured and labled for each element. Just wondering if anyone has run this antenna in its stock form, how does it perform? Wonderingif it could be maximized a bit? Basicly I have a 30 ft boom with 6 hubs, even tho they pass through the boom, I suppose they could be moved to newly drilled holes for differant element spacing if there was somthing to be gained by it. Then new wires could be made up to center it on the frequency of my choosing. Thoughts anyone? Maybe Henry HPSD wants to chime in? All ideas are welcome.
