Well the problem is solved.
Glad to hear it, and super glad it wasn't something
serious or expensive!
I feel pretty stupid for not checking that first.
Don't beat yourself up. We all have made (or make) those kinds
of mistakes during some point in our careers.
What you might do is label your cables
if you have
more than one rig, or antenna, so this won't happen again. One way
is to hand laminate (only needs pressure) a small tag between
two layers of clear Dupont "Mylar D" tape.(The "D" is important)
You can find this at a good art store or library supply store
It is pressure sensitive (sticky) tape with an aggressive
acrylic adhesive, so it is easily used to hand laminate labels.
Two Mil thick tape works FB.
Tape a label tag to both ends
of rig coax cables
and the indoor end of every antenna and rotor control cable.
And it's not a bad idea to also label stuff like amp PTT
cables, RTTY Keying cables, Audio Out and Audio In cables
that go to the rig's rear panels, etc. Don'tcha just hate having a loose
cable with a connector and having to pull the radio forward
or sideways and figure out what it is?
It's not much work and you'll be glad you did it,
especially when some piece of gear craps out in the
middle of a contest and you are tired, sleep deprived,
PO'd, and hurrying to patch in a replacement.
THAT'S when Mr. Murphy likes to show himself!
