Default WTB 3-4' open array antenna bar only

Does anyone have an open array antenna 3' or 4' long. I have a Simrad RA32 4 kw radar and the open array antenna is missing. I have the pedestal/gear box, all I need in the antenna bar that mounts on top.

So, if anyone has an old open array radar laying around thats being decomissioned or doesn't work I would gladly take the antenna off your hands for a few bucks.

Any simrad, sitex, koden, lowrance, or northstar should work.

Thanks,

Chris

I've got a Raytheon R21xx that is collecting dust. It's not the "21x" but rather the newer 21xx. It has a 4ft array.

Thanks. I am looking on ebay. I wish the 5' would work, but it is just to big for my application, (34' Fountain)

Chris, let me find out if a Raytheon will work.

Thanks again

I wonder if they are keeping the online/mailorder side running. I got a catalog from them a few weeks back, and their website looks functional. That said, I saw the LRA-5000/$699 deal in the catalogue, but don't see it on their website now.

Prop - what you think the 4' array I got will look too big on my 233??...

Let me know if you want it. I can take a picture if you like but you won't see anything exceptional nor below expecation. Just a basic Raytheon array. Shiping will be an issue but I'd guess $40 would cover it.

ck some electronic reapair shops, sometimes the drives go bad and is cheaper to replace unit. so they keep parts. Langer Krell in Miami Fl might have parts. Good Luck

The right part # you are looking for is RW701-3 or RW701-4.

The bolt pattern for the antenna is 10.5" by 3.75". I checked a furuno today and the furuno was 7" by 3 5/16".

chrisrack, any chance your raytheon has the 10.5" by 3.75" pattern?
