Hi All,

My first post on the forum. I have just been given a 5 ele beam with one element missing.Can any one identify it from the photo so I can get another element made. I have no dimentions but the boom is 3.5 metres long. I was thinking of making it into a 4 ele beam but that would be a bit of a waste. Any help most welcome.

Thanks and best 73's peter G4NTN

Looks like a Tonna F9Ft 5 ele (I have one here but its not very accessible on the chimney in order to measure the element lengths). Hopefully knowing the model you can google the info.
