So we were hit by lightning
the other day and lost
. The VHF
and dual band radios are toast. I have a question for the radio
We have 1/2" Heliax coax connecting the radios to the antennas. As you know, this is VERY expensive and high performance stuff, so I am loath to replace it. I would need to buy ~150' of it for replacement.
absolutely traveled down the sheath ground, as evidenced by blackened connectors and the damage to the wires grounding the radio
chassis to earth, but the center feed seems physically fine (won't be able to test continuity until I pull the mast).
So my question is - will I be OK keeping the Heliax if it tests OK with no continuity between core
and cover and complete continuity of the core
and the cover, respectively?
If not, and I have to replace, what is a good quality coax for VHF/UHF frequencies to change it with?
(who is happy that the 100' of 1" Heliax connecting the HF and SSB
