Hello mark Marsden,
Welcome to the forum. The R7 was discontinued but still is a good antenna, if you "Google" the manufacturer you will find instructions, a manual and parts list. That antenna can be used for the 11m (CB) band with a few adjustments, the 10m portion is quite broad banded.
As a new member I ask if you could post an intro in the "Welcome to the Forum" topic, viewforum.php?f=89 , so the others here can say "Hi", thanks.

"That antenna can be used for the 11m (CB) band with a few adjustments, the 10m portion is quite broad banded."
I can vouch for that, since I run two Cushcraft (A3S and A3WS) 3-element beams in a stacked array at 50-57 ft. for my ham setup. The 10m and 12m on either antenna can be used quite well, with a 300w tuner. My swr is always 1.2 to 1 or less. Worked Manitoba on 38LSB on barefoot 12w and a Silver Eagle.
