use of long lead coax to 6BTV antenna AK1T on 2/1/13
Because of our condo lay-out I must use about 120 feet of RG8 to reach my Hustler antenna.

If I screw the connector at my tranceiver signal is lost. If only the center of the plug is connected the signal level is normal.

How can I correct the problem.

I've checked the cable and there is nothing wrong there. The antenna resonates in all bands with an SWR less than 1.5.

INSTALLING A HUSTLER MODEL 4 OR 5 BTV N2GVO on 30/12/12
I have a old 5BTV which has been disassembled. The markings are gone on the traps, hence there are 24 ways to put the antenna together. I've tried about 6 but am too darn old to continue! Can anyone tell me a more direct way to determine the bands for the traps?
