RED TAIL AIRBAND STRAIGHT WHIP ANTENNA

February 3, 2022

5 stars for function, works well but after 4.5 years the plastic base has yellowed significantly. The paint bubbled and pealed off from the base up the antenna for an inch or so revealing corrosion and at the red tip the paint is starting to bubble. I would have sanded the antenna and repainted it but I didn’t like the yellowed base, replaced it with a new one - same brand. The airplane is in a hanger except when flying..
