Also, I used “Antiseize” on all aluminum connections before sliding the antenna back together. When I couldn’t rotate the connection with significant effort, I stopped tightening. Don’t get me wrong, as soon as things come around I want a tribander. All the other bands above 20 are also flat. Also, 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.
I worked 3Y0X on it on both 40 and 20 with watts.
I cusucraft CT2 with 12 awg solid copper wire. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.

I bought this used 9 years ago. If you’d like me to do it for you, email me and maybe we can work somthing out. Bottom line is that from now on I’m going to stick with monoband verticals without traps.
Don’t have an account? I finally got time to take each trap apart to see what the issues were if any. The R is a good antenna as far as verticals go, but it needs some help.
Before you pull out our last remaining hair, you might give this a try. SWRs are below 2: It has performed fairly well on the upper bands but getting it to work on 40 and 20 has been a chore. 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.
I used sealent on the tops and around the sides of the rubber at the top of all the traps to prevent water from getting down into the traps. 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.

I’ve had the top trap apart more times than I can count. Have had this antenna up 45 feet in the air for more than 2 years here in Upstate Central NY and it is still going strong. The shortest length cushcravt cable will have the least loss.
Also, when tightening down the stainless steel clamps you have to be careful to not over tighten and strip the threads. 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.

Reviews Summary for Cushcraft R The previous review not withstanding, I use this antenna camping and I’ve had amazing results, easily working Europe when Propagation is good 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. Verticals; Wire; Loop Cushcraft R The antenna had two bad traps and was only working on two bands – 10 and 12 meters.
By pressing ‘print’ button you will print cusucraft current page. I have no connection to the manufacturer but it ain’t junk!!
It has survived a cross country move, and 5 Iowa winters. I had to bore out the holes to use my pop rivet tool to reattach the wire for rewinding the traps.
I have nothing but good things to say about this antenna. Have owned mine for 16yrs, purchased new. janual
The existing hole was too small for the head of the rivet tool to fit properly. I’ve had the antenna up for years. The antenna now works better than ever.
Cushcraft MN-7000 7 Band Vertical Any info or Manuals?!!!
Comments to this Manuals Your Name. I’m not sure if I’m going to bother trying to fix the top trap again.
Have use don cw and ssb. Finally after the most brutal Iowa winter in anyone’s memory, it has developed an intermittent in one of the traps. Enter text from picture: I snipped off the sharp ends because I was afraid that it may cushcraftt in too close to the center rod of the trap and arc.
