Default Base Loaded Antenna

Does anyone know of a 75mhz base load boat antenna stil in production?

Hayes; Deans; and Revolution no longer make base load antennas.

Yes Deans is still out there.
Hayes anteneas are cool and Deans also makes a neat base loaded anteneas.
Tower Hobbies carries the Hayes, but I believe they are still on backorder. I was fortunate to order about 10 Hayes anteneas back around 2003, and I'm not letting go of them either

I talked to both Hayes and Deans today and neither one has made any of their antennas for years. Both are out of production with plans to remake them at this time. I am trying to locate another manufacturer making these base loaded units.

Thanks for all the input everyone; It appears that no one has any of the Hayes or Deans antennas left over in stock.  I have checked on the Revolution products but since they only do Helicoptor parts they only make a 72mhz base load antenna.

I have used the base load antennas in the past on my boats with great success; I only do scale electric so do not have any problems with distance or glitches using them.

Found Base Loaded 75mhz antennas at www.gardentrucking.com

They are listed under chargers and radios section. 

This is a phenominal site that carries 1/16 scale transports and trailers.  you actually order the kit just like you would order a full size Peterbuilt or similar truck and then assemble it.
