  1. One of my SMQVs produces swishing noise when the antenna is touched as shown in the attached video link. The noise stays there even I switch to another 411a and change to another antenna. I figure it's something to do with the ground of the SMQV. Has anyone ever had the same issue? Thanks. https://youtu.be/XjMwQf4SY3Y (I fed the audio signal straight from the 411A into the right channel of my GH5, so please bear with the high noise floor.)
  2. Recently, I found two sections of my Vdb XL-QT are unable to be locked tightly. Used indoor, the pole is alright, but when the blimp and windjammer are on, the two collars of the pole simply can’t hold the weight and those two sections would easily turn. I wonder why it happens. I rarely use this pole in unusual locations like the beach. Is there anything I can do to fix it by myself instead sending it back to Vdb or even purchasing a new pole? My appreciation.
