Well, yesterday was disappointing. My new P1 antenna from Blue Star Antennas arrived as expected. Unfortunately, after dinner we went grocery shopping for the camping trip and by the time my son was in bed and I had stuff for the trip laid out it was too late and I was too tired to do anything with it other than unpack it and look at it. We have a wedding tonight (Thursday??) so it looks like it’s first use will actually be from the campsite.
My initial impression is that it’s well made. The instructions are a bit lacking, though. There’s a bulleted list that says, “Assemble antenna as shown”. Sadly, the drawings on the next page don’t make a damned bit of sense. Oh well. Hopefully I’ll have an update Fri or Sat.
