BALUN TO BOOM CLEARANCE:
The flat bars that the balun box is connected to are too close to the boom, so simply pull the balun assembly outwards and make sure that those flat bars are at least ½” away from the boom. I believe this may have just been an oversight that should have been mentioned within the antenna assembly instruction sheet.
[I believe this inward positioning of the balun was intended to accommodate the slim packaging dimensions and to reduce the risk of shipping damages]
Yes, the connection is at point A. I don't know if this part of the mod makes any difference, but I'm happy with the results. At the very least flip the balun, that's an easy mod.I believe rabbit said the effective electrical connection is point B in post #221, which is off center.
But you are sayingwhen bumping out the balun, to place the bolt & spacer connection in the same hole where the rivet was (point A in post #221)
also, did you mod help
Yep, like I suspected.Ill have to check later, but I think that may be backwards.
