Oh, yeah, it's supposed to do that. Just a little maintenance in time for the huricanes. Nothing to see here...keep moving...

Default Ant ?

Could have fooled me. Looks like it fell.

You build the quad yourself Wade ? Quads are suppose to have good gain correct ? I've never used one.

They have excellent gain, Front to Back ratio, low noise on RX. Small turning radius. Build it? Sort of, it was a kit.

Google Cubex quads

Man when I first saw the picture I though what a strong antenna to fall with all the tower weight and not bend, I was impressed, then I read the post
