My results were mixed with the 9 volt system. Some coax would read 8.75 volts while others would only show up as 1.xx volts or something low like that. It may have been my 9 volt rig itself that caused the low readings. I stripped a 6" piece of coax, wired my 9 volt battery to it, and then black tapped it. The connecting between the battery and the coax maybe was weak depending on position when attached at the wall.

I have had the antenna working with no issues what so ever for two and half days now so it seems unlikely now that the in wall coax is damaged. I just had the wrong cable all together and It must have been acting as it's own antenna for the stations that broadcast only a few miles away.

Your thoughts?
