Suggest you consider an "alternate backstay" antenna. Robust, easy to rig, works as well or better than a traditional backstay antenna, and you don't have the expense and hassle and potential problems of breaking up your standing backstay with insulators.

Search the SSCA board ( for the terms, "alternate backstay antenna" and posts by me (btrayfors)....lots of info there.

I've used one for 18 years now, with no problems and great performance.
