Which Shakespeare SSB Antenna?

I have difficulties selecting the right Shakespeare antenna. Who can help?
For a HAM radio installation need a free standing antenna (no additional support brakes) with a 'side mount' (to be mounted on a wall).
I will be used on a blue water cruising catamaran and should be stabile enough that somebody can get hold on it. (because I will not be able to prevent people form doing so)
What are the differences between the Shakespeare models like 5310, 393 or 390?

Are you saying you want a 23' antenna with a foot mount and no standoff bracket?

I think that's heading for trouble.

BTW, my 390 works fine.

Re: Which Shakespeare SSB Antenna?

We have a 28' Shakespeare model that is free standing without any other support brackets. No problems for the past 15 years with it.

It is mounted on the arch out of the way, but it is sturdy enough to grab if it wasn't.

It sounds like the OP is looking for a foot mounted whip with a single standoff support bracket.

Do a search for Morad. They are much more robust and better suited for a boat traveling offshore. Chuck
