Description of Jeep:
















Pictured below is the 100 AMP Harrison Laboratory "FLUX Capacitor" step-up power supply
feeding the Henry SS750 Power Amplifier using #2 Gage wire throughout the electrical system.
The 2.0 Farad Capacitors, fore and aft of the power supply, help stiffen up current. To clean
up excess wiring I fabricated 1/8" thick copper jumper straps and copper electrical connectors.

Nothin like a little HIGH OCTANE for the Henry SS750.


Cap Box


Here's my special feed point bracket, antenna base assembly
and the special ground manifold for a direct and efficient way to
quickly add and remove radials.



This is a powerfeed feed point induction coil I made with variable speed remote control. This allows me to
nail a "0" reactants from the driver seat. I can also see the coil position from my rear view mirror.



I made the special copper terminal brackets
for managing extra connection points.


This is a photo of an earlier system I made. I made the Radials
out of #12 FLEX-WEAVE ultra-flexible aerial wire. Each radial
is 16 Ft long. I use (4) on 40 meters and (8) radials on 75 meters.


When transporting the Cap Hats the 36"Dia. 8 spoke hat
mounts over the 5Ft. 5"dia. 16 spoke hat as shown. I use
the large hat on 40 and 75 meters.

Note! All Hats and radiators are made out of 6061 T6
aluminum for lighter weight and higher permeability.

35" Dia. Capacitance Hat for your Screwdriver Antenna

Brand "NEW " from W8UZZ.

  • Super efficient
  • Ultra light ( 10.3 oz's )

    If your Screwdriver antenna resonates at 29.950 Mhz with a
    3 ft long radiator, adding this hat to the top will bring resonance
    just above 18.300 Mhz. This will make 17meters and below
    much more efficient and increase the radiation resistance
