Speaking of the antenna in this question: What kind of 2 meter antenna is this?
The connections are rusted and corroded so I'd like to rewire it. If I move the shield from where it is currently attached, down to the base, will it change the characteristics appreciably?
My hope is to be able to replace the coax and install an SO-239 at the bottom, then just wire up the center conductor back where is was originally attached.
(There are a few more pictures with the original question.)
