Thank you for the detailed reply to my questions.

Because the connectors were installed in the field, I have to ask, is there any chance that there could be a poor shield connection in one or more of the connectors?

What type connector are you using? And, what tools were used to strip and crimp/compress?

phone man is asking a potentially relevant question about the balun. Some baluns can be damaged easily. If the female F connector turns in the shell of the balun when tightening the coax connector, wires can be broken inside the balun.
