Horrible Mechanical Connection  Time owned: more than 12 months
OK I made this post about the Diamond X-50 but it goes for all of the Comet and Diamond antennas. There is only ONE screw and a lock washer to screw into the support pipe and into the antenna. This will not hold the antenna base rigid! After a time this connection gets very loose and moves around like a sail boat tacking with the wind. Why can't Diamond or Comet put two more screws into the support pipe and into the antrenna thus keeping it stable? I cannot belive that I am the only one that has had a gripe about this. It is a horrible, single point, support that never is good in any application! What are the rest of you all doing to keep this from happening. The instructions do not address the issue.......The antenna performs well for its size when it is not swaying in the wind. 
Product is in production.
