      can you tell me how you fix the antenna getting hot as i have 2 coming next week thanks jose

      i bought 3 55 antennas
      they talk great recieve is great
      the only downfall is where the stinger goes into the top of shaft
      from the top of shaft down to where the coil is welded to the shaft gets hot
      when i say hot i mean i key up for about 15 seconds unkey jump up on the back of suburban and its almost to warm to the touch

      i also bought a predator 10k
      also recieve is great transmit is great
      also same test go around back feel of antenna from top to bottom and no heat
      so im thinking with a build up of heat its doing something to the antenna to maintain the rf heat being radiated
      tried all 3 of the 55s
      all still get really hot.

      after doing some mods to a 55 antenna i corrected the problem and now no more heat[unquote
