This one prize, Comet Antenna CAA-500 MarkII, has been set aside for one of our supporters. All other prizes below are open to any viewer and do not require a donation.

Our expense to put on this webcast for you cost approximately $3000-4000. Internet cost alone last year was $700 for the show.  In the past W5KUB.COM had been paying this expense out of personal funds. I am retired now and need your help with the expense of this webcast. We don't sell anything and we don't buy anything at Hamvention. In fact we miss being able to look around . When you are interviewing or behind the camera you don't see or having the experience of visiting it.   Our entire focus is putting on a good webcast for those that are unfortunate and can not make the event. We have set aside one special prize that will be awarded to one of our supporters.  For every $10.00 donation you make between April 1, 2017 and 11:59 PM Eastern time on May 20th, we will put your name in this special hat. The winner will be announced at approx. noon on Sunday May May 21.   Example: for $10 your name goes in the hat 1 time, for $20 name goes in twice, or for $1000 your name goes in 100 times..  Please use the donate button at top of menu or click here.

We really need your help and support.  Thank you

 CAA-500 MARKII Antenna Analyzer from Comet Antenna

The NEW CAA-500 MARKII SWR/Impedance Analyzer is the most popular analyzer on the market today!

AUTO SWEEP MODE

Automatically graphs the SWR on the LCD display.   Choose any one of the pre-set amateur band frequency ranges and press the sweep button…in about 30 seconds the SWR graph is completed and displayed.

MANUAL SWEEP MODE

Choose the band and manually set the band-width and manually sweep the chosen frequency range.

 MULTIPLE MANUAL SWEEPS

Should you want to make an adjustment to the antenna length, to the position, height above ground, a gamma match adjustment, etc…you can overlay 5 manual sweep results in different colors!  Instantly graph and see exactly what happened after each adjustment!

Model 4935 - 4 & 9:1 Unun, 1-54 MHz, 5kW

Based on the success of our model 4932, this 5kW configuration is also perfect for matching both long and short length wire antennas for multiband use.  When used with the stated lengths shown in the table below, the 9:1 ratio will allow the internal tuner of most rigs to easily match remotely mounted single wire antennas.

For additional versatility, the 4:1 ratio will handle any random, non resonant length of wire which can then be matched using an ATU or many internal tuners.  Plus this ratio is commonly used to increase performance of 19, 31 and 43 foot multiband verticals.  Unfortunately, both ratios cannot be used simultaneously.

Winner will have a choice of this model or another model at the same price.

$89.95 value - available to US resident only
