Why don't you just send your wing and canard guages to Duane?

The day after I finished closing out my Com 1 & 2 and Nav 1 & 2 antennas
from Martin, I had Dave Black come over and check them out with his SWR
meter. They looked pretty good, didn't they Dave? Since then, we've both
used PPG PRIMA K36 Acrylic Urethane Primer, no zinc oxide. He has even
painted his wings. The SWR readings have changed very little. By the
way, I rolled my primer on, no pin holes. Dave didn't. I sort of had to
used my roller at times as a squegee.
