Was curious if anyone knows exactlyabout the internal workings of the fold down antenna at the base. For example - when you fold down the antenna, is the conductivity of the core broken until you put the antenna back up, or is the connection still there with it down? Also is there a possibilty that some type of corrosion could break the connectionin the base andmake your SWR way too high and ruin your radio without you knowing it?

I "think" that the slider shell is what provides the continuity and that is only good when it is vertical and the slide all the way in place.

That is common practice on all of the fold-over masts that I have known.

That is how I understand it.
