Only a few weeks into the winter weather and my discone has already lost an element to the wind. Access is challenging so going to be a while before I can get it down to fix. All the elements were tightly screwed in though so I'm not sure what more I can do, perhaps add a bit of PTFE tape around the screw thread? #hamradio #antenna
@M0TDN maybe threadloc?
@M0YNG TIL, obviously I've seen this stuff but never knew what it was. I think perhaps that might be suitable, I imagine the wind vibration is what's causing them to work loose, hopefully it won't drop any more before I get to fixing it
@M0YNG https://forums.radioreference.com/threads/radioshack-discone-antenna-question.383983/ looks like a relevant thread on the topic suggesting blue loctite, good to know it's a tried and tested method
