Subject: [TowerTalk] XM240 ShortyForty: XHat Modification
Hi Guys,
I've had problems with the XHat Rods falling off of my XM240.
Therefore, I would like to eliminate the XHat by lengthening the elements.
I'm
wondering if anyone has done this successfully and how much length must be
added to the elements?
Or if anyone has modeled the removal the XM240 XHat by lengthening the
elements... please share what element lengths you came up with.
Thanks!

## I thought the XM240 has been out for years now ?? Who else
has this problem ?? I'd be screaming at Cush Craft about now !
It's either a recent production /factory assembly problem /material/
bracket problem... OR it's a design flaw. If it's a design flaw, then
everybody else with a XM240 is breaking hats off too.
Out of interest, how far PAST the loading coils.. are these X hats ??
And how long are these X hat rods ?? IE: u have 4 of em on the endS
of each ele, how long is EACH of the 4 x rods ?? Distance from ele,
to tip of rod.... thinks it's something like 1824" ??
later... Jim VE7RF
