I have an ICOM IC M402S on my rib on the A-Frame.
Connected to a Silva Star Antenna, VHF 156-163mHZ. Lot 13 .919. 28049.
My antenna has broken and just need to replace the antenna.Cable,mounting and everything is ok. Is it possible without messing and having to feed through and replace cable to connect a new antenna to the original antenna base and cable? Just thread or screw on the new antenna.
Some sort of aerial that will connect (without having to solder) to the original cable.
Anybody know anything about :
I have been told if the original cable is still there you will be able to connect this into the new aerial.
This unit is supplied with a solderless cable connection for connecting the cable to the aerial. Fitting instructions are included. The only tool you should need is a pair of wire cutters.
It is simply a matter of assembling the necessary thumb screws and o-rings onto your original cable and then fitting a bullet nose connector (provided on the end of the new cable – just take it off the new cable) to the end of your original cable. Then plug the cable into the base of the new aerial and tighten a retaining nut. All required components are included.
