Re: Pushnuts summary

Hi Lee,

I have been following all the messages about the push  nuts for the KLM
antennas. I cannot believe all the effort to get pricing on this.  I stopped in
at KLM today,( I live about 15 miles from KLM and they are members of our Sky
Valley Amateur Radio Club )

The stainless steel push nuts are 12 cents each.  Catalog # 28218
The plastic button insulators are  15 cents each. Catalog # PL66125.
Priority shipping -- lot $3.00
2 mtr kit has 44 push nuts and 44 button insulators.
70 cm kit has 85 push nuts and 76 button insulators.

Hope this helps.
