Splices and Terminations Price US
864
Wire Termination Kit. A simpler way to do the job at all of the wire terminations in dipole construction and adjustment. Used in conjunction with the stainless steel thimbles (p/n 800), all of the stress and abrasion points are protected, no matter what wire is used. See 864A illustration for basic application technique.$2.95/pr
864A
A twist on version of the same principle as in the p/n 864, with cut-a-way drawing showing assembly technique. $2.00/pr
864B Gel-filled twist on "wire nuts" for weatherproof, solder-free connections of wire antenna pigtails to center insulator pigtails, etc. Can be drilled like 864, 864A $3.80/pr
864C Direct burial splice kits. Professional type, gel-filled, permanent repairs of communication and/or power installations. $3.75 ea
or $7.25/pr
865
Simple terminal block splice for coax to window-type ladder line. Used where balanced to unbalanced coupling is optional or not a critical issue. Easily weather-proofed with a gel or silicone caulk-filled shrink tubing (not included - ask for details) See also p/n 840 under balunsOnly $0.95 ea
867
Stainless fender-washer kit for full surface "hand-shake' connection of tinned copper braid to braid or copper ribbon junctions for maximum surface RF and/or safety ground connections. $1.75 ea

884 W5GI "MYSTERY" ANTENNA kit - The now famous "Mystery" antenna introduced in CQ Amateur Radio in July 2003. Created by John Basilotto, W5GI, and offered exclusively in kit form by The Wireman, has generated great interest because it works! It is about 100 feet long, works 80 through 6 meters to varying degrees without a tuner, really well with one, and great with a full size matching system. It is worth your time to read the article in CQ, and if you do, you'll want this kit! Every thing you need is included except a feed line (coax) of your choice and length. See also p/n CQ884A, a pre-assembled matching section which enhances 20 meters. $61.95
