Author Topic: Relocating power connector on HS-1800  (Read 431 times)

The power connector is located on a pigtail coming out the bottom of my new High Sierra 1800 antenna.  Here in New England, winter salt and calcium chloride seeps into any nook and cranny and wreaks havoc on connectors.  So I'd like to locate the connector inside the vehicle, or perhaps do away with it altogether.  My question is how hard is it to replace the pigtail which I assume is coming directly from the motor?

You don't have to replace the wire. Just use decent butt connectors, and heat shrink the them with polyolefin, cement filled, tubing. You can buy the tubing from allelectronics.com for less than half normal street price.
