Replace it - only cost twice as much as repairing the original.

While that sounds like a lot, it's currently only a bit over $100, if you shop carefully.

Yes Sir, there was a lot of that green on F-4s in vietnam and all aircraft built by McDonnell Aircraft in the day. I think it is probably not environmentally safe any longer.

I would like to know the answer to this too. My inner walls have been removed so I don't need to fish out the 2 strand but I would like to know if I could/should upgrade to coax and how I can connect it at the antenna. Anybody know?

Removed it and patched the hole. Like the new look, don't watch TV anyway and it makes it easier to get under low hanging tree limbs. We like to boondock. Now I do need to replace the missing radio antenna and may add a J pole for the 2 Meter on a fiberglass mast.

You just need one of these. I'd replace the antenna connection screws with new brass or stainless ones. Last time I looked Lowes had these - I'm sure Radio Shack would

Thanks! That's exactly what I was hoping for... Easy-peasy!
