Okay, a real basic question. I bought a boat with a SSB
tuner already installed. I guess this setup used to work, but I need to connect the antenna
so I can start testing it.
There is a coil of coax coiled up near the stern where it leaves the lazarette through a weather
tight fitting. I need to connect this coax to the backstay above the insulator.
Do I just strip back the coax and clamp the center conductor to the backstay? If so, how is the best way to seal this up so I don't get water
wicking back into the coax?
