I can't quite make out what it is in you photo, but you seem to have a metal pole mounted on the side of the A frame about 6" from the starboard aerial. I'm no electronics/radio expert but I thought that was a bit of a no no as far as absorbing your transmissions and affecting performance.

It's for a flag for when I went to lake Garda it can come off now but should only cause a small shadow on wave pickup plus I use that side for the AIS
