THROWBACK THURSDAY: When 4-year-olds and antennas mix

A few years ago when we released our first flat antenna, I had a lot of fun finding ways to mishandle and misuse it, from submerging it to punching holes in it. I was struggling to find some new uses for this little flat wonder when I realized that I knew someone who would really torture it.
