Interaction with another antenna or metal structure,

Try rotating it around and check it every 30deg or so,

think that might be the problem I highered the antenna up away from my wire and it seems to have settled

Is it OK now?
Have you checked all the spokes are tight, I went through all mine when I got it, that said it was a complete mess when I got mine, so went through the lot.

I say this as I'm not sure whether it was second hand or new, when you get them from someone else they tend of be dismantled as little as possible and transported home.
