I am in the process of putting up a KIO Hexbeam, and on this antenna (and others) the SO-239 is at the top of the center support, which will make it harder to get to in order to seal it properly.

The MFJ-1846 uses the 6 meter loop attachment points (which is at the bottom of the support) to also connect the coax.

Is there any performance difference between the top or the bottom of the center support for the feedpoint?
