    I converted mine...The Cap was toast...
    Got my SWR down to almost nothing...
    page 11 in owners manual.
    rg-58 approx 9 foot long...I used rg-8.
    After verifying swr and some tests...Cranked up the wattage.

    The factory manual I have for this antenna says that the cable lengths for each one of the dipole vertical elements is 29" long.

    Since I was looking at the manual I have, I was looking for a length that was likely in inches. So I read 29" inches, but after reading Jazz's comments I went back to check...and I then saw the notation was really showing 29' feet, and that is not likely.

    You have the antenna, so why don't you measure the the coax length's coming out of the relay. I see there should be 5 coaxial wires, 1 is the feed line, 1 is the coaxial stub for the omni function, and three for the coaxial wires to the elements.

    Is this simple enough?
