Can someone help me determine what type of W9INN antennae I have. I bought it 10 years ago and its not the dipole with the sreaders that typically defines a W9INN antennae. Here are the specifics;
The dipole is approximately 120' long.
60' from center of dipole ( W2UA balun in center joing diploe halfs) to end.
50" from center to 6" pvc with windings .
36' to 4" pvc with windings.

What antennae is this from W9INN and what bands is it for.
I'm going to set it up when I move but was wondering .
I looked all over the web and all I see is the 4 legged W9Inn ant.

It is likely to be an 160/80/40 trap dipole. At 120 ft, it is too long for the lowest band to be 80 meters--as the traps act as loading coils on the lowest band.

Thanks Zak, I looked everywhere looking for what it wis and like I said all I could find was the 2 legged W9INN model. I know the guy I got this from was a 160 man like myself. I am looking forward to setting it up in VA and thats when I can truely see what it is and can do. Thanks again for your input.
