Tune my bent 5.8 circular polarized antenna?
I just received a set of 5.8GHz antennas and the bozos didn't even ship it in a box... not even a padded envelope, just a plastic FedEx envelope.
Needless to say it was crushed a bit during shipping. I'm sure I could tweak it back into shape and "eyeball" it... but is this going to get it even close to being in proper tune?
Are there specific spec's/dimensions I could use to do some measuring on this antenna?
I guess it would be nice to be able to tune these anyway, as after some hard landings or getting bumped around in the car it would be nice to keep them in proper tune....
I searched for "tuning antenna" but did not find anything - any info or threads you could point me to would be much appreciated!

Doesn't matter about "tune".... Those were never "tuned" properly anyway. Just bend it back, if it doesn't break (it probably will) it will be close enough to what they would have been able to do in the first place.
Unless you have about $8-15K lying around you can't tune them properly anyway.

Probably is performing better now.
Check the angles for it, make a template in paper or cardboard and bend it to shape with two set of pliers to avoid strain in the joints.
