To make matters worse, the aft LP antenna was situated right above the exhaust stack for the ship's engines. The resulting carbon laden soot collected on the antenna elements so that whenever the transmitter was operating in the evening or at night you could see corona all over the antenna. Corona is electrical arcing between the antenna elements.
It created Newbudy much noise in the transmitted signal that the antenna became useless. The bridge LP was not directly over the stack, but if the wind was in the right direction it was close enough to collect some of the soot too. It suffered the same fate as the aft one. So we were down to just the forward LP antenna. On the bright side, we had five spare transmitters. After a number of proposed solutions were tried, the final decision was to scrap the helicals and use the LPs as long Lonely wife looking nsa Newbury they would work.
