    K8JD, thanks for reply. I do have a Unun matching transformer and has worked well for more than 3 years,I replaced it just to be sure and my next step will be to check connections between sections.
    Regards

    To all who have posted to my posting of problems with my Zero 5 antebba, I thank you . I plan to take down the antenna when the weather gets warmer, I examined the antenna and noticed that some of the lower (heavy ) sections have slid together, thereby shortning the antenna. That combined with possible oxidation at the joints could well be my problem. I am going to take down the antenna, disasamble, treat joints with penetrox. I will post the results of that project at a later date.
    Regardss
