Bob Wiser on Radio Antenna Maintenance (why isn't your radio working as well as it used to?)

"Do you have a plane, or know of a plane that has a radio that isn’t working as well as it use to?  Do you know what Aluminum Oxide is and why you should be concerned about it?  Are there strange things happening in your cockpit electronic systems when you transmit?  At the next EAA meeting we’ll discuss these topics and give you an opportunity to check out your plane’s communications systems performance.  Don’t be fooled by having your plane stored in a Watsonville Airport hanger."
