Hi regarding choke flanges how much power are you putting through the wave guide ?

as I do not think you will see the benefit of choke flanges

I will have a look in the loft, I may have some square sets.  I am pretty sure I have round flange sets  and I think I know where the rings could be obtained from.

Remember  to mate the  choke / o-ring flange to a plane flange. Never put 2 choke flanges together (without a  proper shim)

As part of the next phase of the GB3KBQ rebuild I am hoping to raise the antenna a couple of metres to clear local vegetation. I have a couple of old square flanges but would ideally like to use a choked flange AND sealing rings..rather than silicon sealer!

I wonder if anyone has these items which they would be prepared to donate to the project?

See attached pictures of the size of sealing rings required.

Many thanks
