    Going through stuff in my garage and found this antenna packed away. I purchased it used several years ago with the intent of using it with my RV. RV is gone now and never did end up using it and still no plans of doing anything with mobile in the future so I'm letting it go.

    $275.00 includes shipping within the CONUS

    I have no idea, I did not see anything on the antenna to provide that information indicating a model number. Perhaps someone more familiar with the Outbacker can help answer that question for you.

    If they are 3 foot sections, it is probably an Oubacker 8 split, good for 300 watts.

    I reached out to Tom this morning, see if he remembers anything about the antenna and gets back to me. If so, I'll post any new information.

    Here is Tom's reply regarding the antenna.

    It was a modification of their standard model:
    OB8 The original Outbacker mobile antenna 75M - 10M + WARC, 300W, 67” tall
    Current price new is $319.00.
    But I had it specially made to have extra taps for the low end of 80 and 40 so I could work CW mobile and had it made red to match the car I used it in at the time.
    A great antenna. 300 watts.

    I don't think it is the OutBacker Perth... I have/had one in Germany back in the 90's and mine was Black in color. Mine looked a bit shorter also.
