Automatic Antenna

Does anyone know of a solution to the antenna not going down fully? Its annoying seeing only go down so far!

While I am at it, does anyone know how the antenna is installed in BA's and can it be adapted to other models??

Re: Automatic Antenna

It could either be a damaged mast or the motor in the ariel. Check the mast for any damage and replace it. I dont think the mast itself is that expensive.

Good luck

Re: Automatic Antenna

if its not the motor that has gone, check to see if the actual antena is bent and therefor physically cannot go down
