  • VHF Antenna Question

    My antenna is currently mounted on my gunnel, I plan to move it to my t top. Question is, the antenna looks like new, but the antenna wire where it exits the antenna and enters the gunnel is brittle and the exterior insulation is cracked in a couple spots. I don't believe the wire is replaceable. Can I put heat shrink tubing over it, or should I bite the bullet and replace the antenna?

        X2 on the 8' and base I too moved mine to the T-Top and went this route. I have the Shakespeare Galaxy black Antenna. Love it, getting a matching AM/FM 4' to match.

              Get an 8' and digital brand. Best one on the market.
