Hey guys... I'm missing (2) Radials (long rod's) from my diamond discone. Will this make a MAJOR difference in my signal? Would it be worth it to have a guy go up there and screw them back in probably for a few hundred bucks!

I'm not qualified to give you a difinitive answer, but, do you have an S-meter on your scanner? If so, have you noticed fewer bars than prior to the problem? From my experience there was a slight loss but not enough to make it worth spending the bucks.

Just get up there and screw/weld/glue them back yourself. Don't be a wuss.

I too have had a radial come off and I couldn't tell the difference. Use it that way for a while and see if you can notice any degradation in what you receive.
