What the heck if you damage the Delta who cares, it is not much good anyway.
By the way have you tried to contact the company in Michigan?
You know, I had actually thought of that, but figured it would look rather foolish. On second thought, I could rotate the rabbit ears so they run front to rear - virtually invisible from the ground! Great idea
I have contacted Barker Mgf. about the Delta, but their response is they have no parts, nor any source of a whole unit. Dead end... (I still remember their introducing this thing in 1985 at the international Rendezvous of an SOB club. They gave a long introduction on this being the wave of the future. Now they just referred me to Wineguard
.) So much for manufacturer's backing their products.
Thanks for that idea. I think I'll temporarily, at least, reassemble the unit with the rabbit ears out. By the way, my antenna works quite well. I'm not sure why, but it does a good job.
