    I'm trying to save an old telescopic antenna. The think had a small
    kink in it but I have gotten about 99% of the kink out. The antenna
    slides good now but the little copper slides inside the antenna have
    corroded to nothing and the antenna section slide apart. Is there a
    good way to repair the antenna? Anyone ever run across this?

    If you are able to get into the bottom section of the antenna at the
    housing, you can try to put in some copper shims. Most of these have a
    small tab on the copper that fits into a slot and keeps the antenna from
    coming apart however. You can also "superglue" the bad section together and
    still allow the remainder of the antenna to telescope.
