|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.

|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?|
