Welcome to the official Charlie Tango DX Group CB And Amateur Radio Forum. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference. We have members varying from fully qualified operators on the Amateur Bands, to newcomers who have just bought a PMR446 set, and many CBers both old and new. All are equal on the Site.

The CT Site contains many reviews, tips and modifications within the forums, and we take pride that no sensible question is ever left unanswered, and nobody is ever belittled or mocked for asking an honest question, no matter how simple it may seem. We were all new to the hobby once.

Hi all,just noticed I've been a right plonker.Aerial has been up for a week now n works really well BUT just noticed I've left the brown cardboard over the tuning rings and wondered if it really matters as the rain should eventually get rid?? Just wondered if I should take it all down to get this off or will it be ok ?? Thanks,Andy

Thank you for putting a Smile on my face ths morning!. . . . I can just picture you looking up at the aerial yesterday and saying, "What the? . . :doh2: . . huh? . . . . Oh Nooooooo! :doh: "As Colin has said, the wrapper shouldn't cause any issue at all. As long as your VSWR is OK, then leave the cardboard until it bio-degrades in the weather. If you get anything like the wind and rain I do here, it'll probably be gone by Easter!

Don't worry. The addition of some soggy cardboard to the base of the A99 will have no detrimental effect - a bit like these then:
