Of course it is possible.  The driven element is "DC" grounded to the boom on all the M2 6m beams, and should measure a short to ground using an Ohmmeter.

It's not a short at 50 MHz.

You antenna is working correctly. Put it up and you will be amazed at it's performance.

I put one up just like it this last December and worked Greenland and Nova Scotia within a month. Being on 6 meters for 20 years and never working them before was a nice surprise.

I have all M2 antennas from 50 Mhz to 1296 nad they are the best built you can find. They are well worth the price. Since I put all M2's up I have been up the tower for repairs at all. Not so with Cushcrap antennas. Spent quite a bit of time on tower cleaning feed points pretty regularly.
