My discone has seen better days. Hurricane Sandy knocked off two radials and i noticed my antenna and mast was being used to support my neighbors squash plants. You couldn't even see the antenna it literally looked like a small tree.
I was also wondering why all of a sudden the 19th & 23rd feed sounded really bad. The ground loop isolators have been ordered and my O.C.D. is now in check. It took me 5 minutes and a set of cutters and it is all cleaned up now and ready to rock n roll. When i'm down to 2 radials on the discone i will buy another one :)
