It’s Back!

The Channel Master Stereo Probe 9 is back! The beloved Probe is now called the SBFM9 and manufactured by Sky Blue Antennas of Burnsville, Minnesota and sold by dealers across the upper midwest, northern New England, Houston and elsewhere. The SBFM9 is a nine element fringe yagi for the FM band. Buyers of this antenna are giving it a big ‘thumbs up’ for performance and build quality. Finally, DXers in North America have an FM fringe yagi built here in North America that doesn’t need to be shipped from across the Atlantic.

Thank You!

We’d like to thank Joel Rosenberg of Toronto for being so kind to send us paper copies of the 1971 and 1972 VUDs, plus a few other issues to make our collection as complete as it can possibly get (unless somebody has some 1968 issues stashed away somewhere). So, if you are a VUD collector, go get them in the VUD Archives.
