Default antenna coupler/ amplifier

I am looking for one to power a King 8008 loran. If anyone has one that you are willing to part with, please let me know. Thanks! Jeremy

I have a used coupler for my old Loran and a brand new 8ft whip antenna for it as well I never even opened the antenna package as I bought it over the winter and the unit would not power up in the spring so I bought a new GPS fishfinder combo. It is a Impulse President coupler let me know if you want it will be happy to help you out.

Thanks Maniac! I am fairly sure that the Impulse coupler will not work with the King loran (I could be mistaken)? I am not sure if the c-wave universal coupler will even work with the King 8008 (I heard the coupler for the King 8008 is manufature specific)? If I am mistaken, someone please correct me as I am not 100% certain on these claims. I would definately take you up on the antenna, but it probably is not worth the time and shipping such a long (inexpensive) device, unless you live near Tampa to Sarasota, Florida I may take you up on that gear?

Yep, might be my only other option...$169 plus shipping option I was trying to avoid. But they will still make them. I was/ am hoping someone here might be able to offer me a better alternative?
