Garmin GA29 - is cable repair/splice possible?

Hi Guys,

My first post here, hope it's not too bad form to wade in with a question......

The coax cable from the GPS antenna on our boat has been damaged. The cable is hard wired into the unit at the antenna end, and is teminated in a standard BNC connector at the head unit end. Is it possible to just use a BNC line plug and socket or will it attenuate the signal too much?

Thanks in advance!

Yup, that'll be fine. Obviously, you'll need to keep it watertight.

And, welcome to RIBnet.

just make sure that you use a 50 ohm BNC joiner and not a 75 ohm joiner
