Another poorly Radarbox
« on: June 07, 2009, 04:15:16 PM »
Afternoon all,

Looks like mine is due for a visit to W & S.  My flights has dropped from a peak of 160 to 2! and only then if they virtually are over the house. Trust it to happen at a weekend.

Tough luck John. At least it's easily and quickly repairable and there's plenty of advice on the forum as to how go about it.

As a matter of interest, what is (was) your set-up?

Sorry to hear about your box John

As bratters says, it would be interesting to know what aerial you are using and were it is positioned.

Looks like you have joined daveg4otu!!

It was on a HBA-1090 roof mounted aerial with 10 metres of Westflex W103 cable.

On the other hand who cares about percentages
if one own's box failedAirnav better take care that such will not happen according to state of tech
instead of repeatedly blending with low percentage figs

my opinion
