Introduction

It is undoubtedly the most difficult but also the most important thing.

Don't forget that it is because of you that the antenna will move, and how you handle it will determine:
  • base type of reaction: sudden movements / light, vibration.
  • the moving sense: vertical top to bottom, or top down.
  • the upstream of fatique muscle you sense at the end of 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 h...
The principle of the lecher wire will slightly increase the weight of the antenna when it will cross/point in the direction of what you are looking for, but you will need to come to feel the difference between a throttled issue from the wind or from your moves (walk, turn...).

 

Technique 1: the beginer(les doigts)

4 Janv. 2009

There is nothing pejorative in this appellation, it is preferable to begin by this technique to come to feel the movements of the antenna.

The idea is to clip the antenna with your thumb and your index.
The antenna will hold by the force of your fingers.

Clip the antenna with your fingers


This is what it should look like:

Hold the antenna like a crab



Advantages
  • Very simple
Disadvantages
  • You will need strength in you fingers
  • It is not a easy way to hold things, you will be tired quickly
  • After about ten minutes, fingers become moist and the antenna tends to slide slowly

 

Technique 2: The standard (the wrists)

Fold your auricular, pass the branch between its back and the front of the annular, the major and the index.
The branch will end behind the thumb like this:

Hold your antenna



Fold the 3 fingers (annular, major index) on the branch.

Hold your antenna


Do the same with the left hand.

The antenna will hold using the force of the wrists, because you will create an inward force.

Wrists generate an inward force



Advantages
  • This position is easy to hold in time.
  • Thanks to the wrists, antenna reactions are more simple to explain (regarding interior or exterior research).
Disadvantages
  • Not easy to understand, at first
  • Reactions are more complex to understand
