The top one looks like the coupler to lock antenna mast section together. being green it is to join mast section MS-50 to mast section MS-49. These are the antenna that goes on the MP=48 base if not mistaken. Or 55 to 54, don't have one in front of me to measure.

My first thought was that it was an MC-451, the clamp for the top joint of a five-section HF antenna. The color is right and the ID of the cylindrical part is only a little too large. But the hardware (nuts & bolts) is wrong and the height as shown is about triple what it would be. Also, the height and width given don't match the ID given

Hello.

For comparison with an MC-421 clamp.

Also, I'm looking for a MC-421 green clamp and a MC-422 yellow clamp.

Thank you.

What is the actual ID of the big clamp? It is much larger than 13.55 mm. Might fit an AG-34, 35 or 36.

I have some MC-422's, as well as 423 and 424. But no MC-421.

Ziro,

I apologize for not responding in a timely manner. In early January, for some reason I got behind on emails and messages and somehow missed it. If you still potentially want 10 of MC-422, I will drop the unit cost for 10 or more to $3.00 so 10 pieces would be $30.00 US, plus shipping. As it has been so long since you asked, I am going wait until you respond and if you still need them, then pack and quote shipping and total.

If you still have M422, M423 & M424 clamps available, I am interested.
If anyone knows of M421 please let me know also !

I'll try to get everyone who asked an answer sometime on Wednesday. I've been preoccupied with some other matters, including having to have a new roof installed on house and shop (AKA garage)because of a hailstorm.

Gary, I just sent you a direct email with all of the details.

You seem to have PM's turned off or at least I couldn't figure out how to send you one.

Ziro,

I mistakenly wrote MC-422 but I should have written MC-424 (blue). Price would be $30.00 for 10 of them. Plus shipping.
