True enough, but ...

If it's (at least partly) the wires, and if (at least one of) the problem is a minor "open" (slight break within a wire that's been tied too tightly, and/or flexed too much), then it could be a truly intermittent electrical issue (like so many others).

If that were the case (just speculating here, but ... that's all anybody (including BMWNA ) seems to be doing), then a replacement ring could /seem to have/ fixed the problem, while the problem could really survive several iterations of replacement antenna rings.

Clear as mud?
