    Hello again,
    I'm recycling an old VHF/UHF/FM antenna, that has 2 sets of wire connectors on the dipole... one set on top, one set on the bottom. The top set has "wings" or whatever they might be called, and the bottom has none.
    Does anyone know what this is for, what purpose it serves??
    Thanks as usual.
    (Can't get pics to load)

    Are they the same connectors or different?
    Some antennas have 2 sets of connections. One set is usually the VHF/FM and the other is the UHF.
    A pic will help.

    guessing the batwings are UHF, the longer rods are VHF/FM.

    I'm trying to do pics... "Upload a File" just flashes, nothing more. I'll keep trying.
    Thanks
