Tip of the Week: 2/10/2013 Safer Transport

Back in the day, I used to advise people to remove the antenna from their radio when transporting it. This included going to the track in a radio bag or being shipping it if needed. If the radio took a hit, an installed antenna could turn into a metal spear and smash into the internal circuitry it mounts to. If you have an AM or FM antenna, this is still a good idea, but today there are numerous chargers available with bullet connectors that plug into the charger. The same advice applies here–unplug those leads when transporting a charger.
