Re: Raising the "F" layer?


Yes Bernie...I had that same problem, but I solved it by drilling through
the connector and placing a small cotter-pin straight through to prevent the
unscrewing, thereby allowing the coax to twist. After 4 hours of operation,
the coax had enough twist in it to return the vertical to several previous
headings, thereby giving me a circular polarized signal on any band....

Hey Don,

I'm glad to see that you have some experience with using a rotator with a
vertical, I need some technical advice.
I've tried using the same setup as you, but mine keeps unscrewing the coax
off my vertical every time I turn the rotator. You got any suggestions on
how to fix this ?
