    Does anyone know if Van Ordt Antenna Company in Ontario California is still in business or not?

    this antenna:


    In 1981, the innovative Van Ordt antenna company took a step outside the box and introduced the “Audio King” antenna. For the first time, we could actually see the coil inside a clear plastic cover. And, as if it wasn’t different enough to use clear plastic for the coil cover, Van Ordt also filled the coil enclosure with oil, which was intended to help keep the coil wire itself cool when running higher than legal power. You would be proud to own a set of Audio Kings, and your friends would be talking about them on the radio because at the time, these antennas left a lasting visual impression with their unusual wow factor.

    Yes I am told that was a decent performer. The Quad Wrap Fiberlgass Antenna's were also well made. Blast from the past !

    Google thinks they are still in business in Ontario California. Look them up and call the phone number listed and see if they answer.

    "Users claim up to 30% better performance than other top line antennas"

    Is that a wild antenna claim? Jeez, who'd of thunk it!
