UHF Wire
 
Bit of an unfortunate incident. The UHF wire running along the side of my Winegard 7698p snapped in the middle. Is there any way to repair this? It doesnt look like it would be easy to remove and replace. Can i use electrical tape to hold the two ends together?? Any suggestions?

Thanks

The ideal repair would maintain the same diameter of the conductor as well as the spacing from adjacent parts of the antenna. I would look at crimp barrel type connector (sometimes called butt splice connectors). If the conductor is aluminum, consider using Noalox or a similar anti-oxidant compound to prevent corrosion.
