Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Antenna

Problem:

Antenna pole/mast for the radio gets stuck when you try to lower it.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Rags/cloths

  • Bottle of mineral spirits/rubbing alcohol

  • Cooking wax paper or chain lube like Pedro's Ice Wax Chain Lube

Solution:

When radio antenna does not got fully down when you try to get it retracted, it obviously has suffered from a lack of maintenance.  Even something as simple as an antenna needs some maintenance now and then to keep it working properly.

Do the following steps every once in a while to maintain your antenna:

  1. Upon extending your antenna to its highest position, carefully wipe the antenna pole/mast clean with a rag/cloth dampened with either mineral spirits/rubbing alcohol.

  2. Use another rag/cloth to dry the antenna pole/mast.

  3. Then, either apply a wax product like Pedro's Ice Wax Chain Lube or rub regular cooking wax paper around the antenna pole/mast so as to act like a lubricant in assisting the smooth operation of the antenna pole/mast's going up and down.

So, do these three steps to ensure your antenna will be there for you to reach the signal of your favorite radio station.  Either that, or you'll ultimately need to replace your antenna--and at that time, you'll be tempted to go with satellite radio in lieu of buying a replacement antenna to just pick up your traditional am/fm stations.
