are the long white plastic arials ok for ribs?

long white plastic type ariel or springy metal arial

i quite like the long white plastic arials but have been told they break easily on ribs at the knuckle joint piece, can anyone vouch if this is the case or do they usually last a good long time

i quite fancy an arial that looks like an arial rather than a coathanger affair but looking for advice on this one

The smaller the better IMHO Chris. Base loaded with springy steel whip. There is a Rolls Royce of antenna but can't think of it right now, but it is very expensive.

Hi
Yep I had the long PVC one, it broke after 1 season at the base where the loading coil is, so if it breaks and you donít notice transmitting into a miss matched antenna will result in the RF energy bing reflected back into the PA stage and could damage the radio

Nice whippy ones are better

[QUOTE=Hugh Jardon] long white plastic type ariel or springy metal arial

i quite like the long white plastic arials.


I used to have a pair like that on an old Bedford Rascal I once had . I used to use the roof for Shggn. It was all bent in and ideal. The prob was the arials,they would start wavin' around and whip my arse!! It all got a bit nasty and I had to go to the doctors. He said it was the worst case of " Van arial" disease he'd seen in years!
