Have owned mine for 16yrs, purchased new. I’m not sure if I’m going to bother trying to fix the top trap again. Place worm clamps over each end of section BD.

Cushcraft R Product Reviews

By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page. Even a great antenna will suffer in poor conditions but I’m afraid the R is more susceptible to the weather out here on the Pacific Coast of Washington than most. Also, when tightening down the stainless steel clamps you have to be careful to cushcfaft over tighten and strip the threads. I drilled out the pop rivet and used a screw with a lock washer on both sides to reattach the metal part of the capacitive device.

A connector boot is included for use with your new antenna figure I. If it rotated I slowly tightened more, and then tried to rotate it by hand.

I finally got time to take each trap apart to see what the issues were if any. Each time I seem to fix something different. I snipped off the sharp ends because I was afraid that it may screw in too close to the center rod of the trap and arc. What I did to ensure I had a tight fit was wait for the moment that turning it down became harder and then tried to rotate the sections with my hand. I had to bore out the holes to use my pop rivet tool to reattach the wire for rewinding the traps.


If you live in an area that is dry and not to windy then, perhaps, otherwise Rr7000 would try something else. It has survived a cross country move, and 5 Iowa winters. LOCATION Although the R will operate in almost any location, it will perform best if it is mounted vertically and located in the clear away from surrounding objects such as buildings, trees, power lines, towers, guy wires, antennas and metallic objects.

The R should not be attached to a ground radial system. Before you pull out our last remaining hair, you might give this a try. Verticals; E7000 Loop Nanual R Over tightening will simply loosen the connection and cause the antenna to detune by sliding down into itself while it’s up in the air. The metal part of that device slides into into it and is held in place by a pop rivet that was very loose.

All the other bands above nanual are also flat. I have nothing but good things to say about this antenna.

The capacitors are formed by the outer shell of the can and a coaxial piece of tubing pop-riveted to the structural tubing on each end of the trap. The previous mannual not withstanding, I use this antenna camping and I’ve had amazing results, easily working Europe when Propagation is good Reviews Summary for Cushcraft R I have no connection to the manufacturer but it ain’t junk!!


Anyway, it has served me well everywhere. Comments to this Manuals Your Name. Cushcrafy, the aluminum wire that was used to wind the coil was in bad shape and looked like it had arc’d just below where it exits and attaches to the outside of the can. Ice storms, snow, temps to F, and 60 mph winds. If, in the judgement of Cushcraft, any such antenna is defective, then Cushcraft Corporation will, at its option, repair or replace the antenna at its expense within thirty days of the date the antenna is returned at purchasers expense to Cushcraft or one of its authorized representatives.

It does not mean that the RF path is short circuited.

Cushcraft MN-7000 7 Band Vertical Any info or Manuals?!!!

Finally after the most brutal Iowa winter in anyone’s memory, it has developed an intermittent in one of the traps. I bought this used 9 years ago.

Got it, continue to print. I’ve had the antenna up for years.

Slide BD over Manaul top tube 2″ and secure worm clamp. Drilling out a dimple in the wall of the trap “can” will allow you to remove the delrin spacer and get to the guts. Enter text from picture: CT1 I think has the trap that also has a capacitive device that is shielded from the outer can wall by some hard foam or plastic type material.
