Hi Bob, W0DXZ

The following is the instruction manual of the 416 TB in pdf format.


To get RHCP when NOT energized just follow the instruction in Fig-5A

The PS-4 switching box is an optional and you can wire the antenna for only
RHCP or LHCP without it but you need two original balun DB part
Nr 350747 and the original phasing harness PS

If you missed the above parts the manual shows you the lenght to build it
using coax cable with velocity factor 0.66 like the RG-213 or RG-58
