Chewed Tripple Mag antenna cord…

Postby Rowdy Fitz » Tue Jan 11, 2022 3:42 am

I had a dog chew my antenna cord in half last time I went out. Anyone know how to replace the end? I can tell it is just a crimp on end, where would a guy find the correct fitting? I don’t think they’re the same as cb antennas…

Just cut it off where he hasn’t chewed on either side, strip it down to the core wire, sauder that and wrap it up with electrical tape or heat shrink if your fancy…
Small roll of sauder, use any kind of torch to melt it onto the wire..

I drove over mine and ripped the end off last summer. I took it into a radio shop we use for our company handheld and truck radios. They charged me 5 bucks and it was done in 30 seconds.

I assumed that since it was a Garmin gps that the fitting would be some special fitting that only Garmin has. I’ll look around for a radio shop after I solder it back together to get it working again.
