It was all planned and measured to the finest of detail. Well actually got the wife to hold it whilst i shut the garage door, it worked, so i made some holes, no turning back. Little did she tell me it might have moved slightly when i went to mark it

Still if it didnt fit i'd have blammed the provider

. I could always dig down the garage floor, that would be an easy quick fix.


Seriously though, if i raise the jockey wheel i get a lot more room.

You should try to keep the distance between radio and antenna to no less than 1m or so.
I'd look carefully at your connectors, it's very easy to snag a strand of the conductor as you pass it into the PL259 causing a short. With the antenna and the radio end disconnected there should be no continuity between centre pin and the PL259 body on a multimeter.

She has a soul, but the real question must be who did she sell it too?

I resoldered the connectors as I thought it might be a stray strand but there's nothing that I can see. I'm going to move the antenna temporarily to the back of the double jockey seat (at least 1m away from receiver). I need to order some more co-ax (more than I need), as the final destination with be on a transom pole, then routed through the under-deck trunking.

I do have a multimeter, so checked the resistance tonight. No resistance at all, reading was 0 ohms. I'll try moving it. If that doesn't work, then I may have to send the receiver back to ICOM, although I'd rather not... considering I put a bead of sikaflex around it when it was installed.

On my multimeter this would be a full short then. When there is no continuity the screen reads "---" or something like that. Basically you want infinite ohms of resistance between the center pin/connector and the outer body of the connection/sheath of the coax.
