Re: Helix Feed with Cup--Dimensions



Hi Jerry,

Not to be too picky, but I want to get the details right...

Is the 1.6" diameter the inside or the outside of the #10 wire?

Also, I've never seen a dimension of where exactly the N connector
is positioned.  How far out from the center line is it?

Thanks,

Greg  KO6TH
