The antenna had about 5 spots where the insulation is gone and the wires were frayed and protruding the insulation. So I removed the top 9 inches or so, since it was hacked beyond repair. I would imagine the overall length of the antenna was about 13 inches. I have no way of verifying this since I dont have the wire I removed anymore.
It is a synthesized hitec receiver.. kinda old school, but it was top notch when I got the thing.
So a 4 inch antenna is a no go huh?
Thanks again for the input.
