Hey guys,

Just brought a new semi auto aeropro antenna to replace the original one as it wasnt retracting fully, on the pack it says the antenna has a mast length of about 99cm but when i tested it it would only extend to about 25cm.

Have i got a dodgy one or is there something i am missing?

Thanks.

Ok next problem,

I've had to cut and join the coax antenna cable because the new one was way to short now i've got s**t reception.

Is this caused by the join maybe bad connection or loss of signal strength? I went down to d**k smiths and what they gave me was 2 male ends and a female to female connection to join them together.

Is there an better way do do this?

Thanks.

I know it's not ideal, but can you dismantle the new antenna and install the co-ax wire from the old antenna (if it's still OK)?
