Cushcraft A3s Pickup in Mini Cooper

Yesterday I went to pick up a used Cushcraft A3s from a ham who had replaced it after only a few months with a very nice SteppIr and had offered it for sale.  I was supposed to pick it up last week but I postponed it due to the large east coast snowstorm.  This is my only my 2nd 3 el tribander I have owned (well maybe 3rd counting one that never got put up).  The 1st one was a TA-33Jr that I bought used in NNJ about 1964 after I had had a license for about 2 years or so.  My very 1st beam was a 'ZL' special that had been given to me as a wood frame only.  I paid $25 for the TA-33Jr and it was in good condition.  This Cushcraft looks almost new and was only outside of the box since last March.  Tom N3ZC (see his SteppIr on also included a Balun for me to use and I hope to get this antenna up for a contest this season. 

I was suprised to find that the Antenna broke down to a small enough size to transport in our Mini Cooper!
