Went up the tower today to look into an intermittent problem on my middle TH6.
I had rebuilt it probably 5 years ago, and noticed a couple days ago SWR was
way up on all three bands. That night it was good again. Since the DE can be
reached from the tower, I decided to remove it and found FIVE stainless hose
clamps that I had used to replace the rusted original hardware very loose! I
noticed that although there was no sign of rust, there was no name on these
clamps. They were all stainless with 5/16 hex head screws, so I could tighten
them down pretty well and I'm sure I did originally.
Has anyone else experienced SS hose clamps loosening? Is it a matter of the no
name brand? Tnx JACK W1WEF
