Don't bother trying in the city. Mine works fine on the trail, but around my apartment it sounds terrible.

is it one with those adjustable tips? did it rip off or something? Next time you get a chance to in a relatively open area, check your SWR

I smack mine in parking garages all the time (usually because I forget I have it on there). It's one of those firefly antennas

That's exactly what happened. I forgot about it and it nailed pretty hard. I have a habit of setting off car alarms for fun in parking garages

if the actual tip came off, you should probably be able to just put a correctly sized bolt in there, or I'm sure you can order a replacement tip.

The rubber cover that covers the tip (the condom, haha) has long since been ripped off mine, probalby the first time I parked in a parking structure and forgot the antenna was on there

Anybody have a mystery water leak on the passenger floorboard after using the AC for a while? I don't see any damage to the drain assembly that goes through the firewall, and it seems to blow air/water out fine into the engine bay when running the AC.. But somehow my carpet is soaked.

Have you taken it out wheeling lately?

No, but I just read that since the drain tube is pointed straight forward out of the firewall, when driving at high speeds (I'm all highway) the air pushes the draining water back into the system and it has nowhere to go but the floorboard.. Jeep actually had a TSB where they install a 90 degree angle on the drain so it drains downwards and not against the wind.. Go figure. I'll put a tube on it tomorrow.

Jeep is finally fixed. The manifold gasket was indeed bad and causing my irritating whistle upon warming up. With the new gasket it's like a whole new jeep. Runs smoother with more power.

Also installed a mechanical water temp gauge and a vacuum gauge for on the fly monitoring

Mine has that 90-degree angle on the drain, so maybe I was part of that TSB? I haven't had any issues with drainage onto the floors, but I can tell you this: last week I saw more water come out of that drain at startup than I've EVER seen in the past. I'm guessing +-8 ounces of water all at once when I started the Jeep. Was it more humid than normal here in L.A. last week (causing more condensation)?

Yeah yours must have been taken care of.

Mine dumped more water than I've ever seen today, must be some kind of climate change, I know it was hot and cloudy where I was, who knows.
