[DML] Re: Fixed my antenna, sort of...



I just got mine "broken in". I cycled it a bunch of times and lubed 
the mast with WD40. Works great now. I also found the ball to be too 
big. I ended up cutting off half of the ball to allow the nut to fit 
over it. Still looks pretty good, and more importantly I can get 
reception!
