Re: fiberglass boom



Ah ha . . . then what are you saying . . my set up is possibly bad?  I
wouldn't think the boom would affect the Dish and helix at 2.4 Ghz and being
5 feet long and only somewhat conductive at UHF wouldn't seriously interact
with the 70 cm uplink yaggi.  Should I change it out for expensive
fiberglass?
