how silly do it feel there is a small ali tube over the socket so when i looked into it ,it looked like a n type due to there being no insulator between the outer and inner parts hence why the n type plug would screw up but there was no connection to the inner conductor. so to make it clear the socket on the aerial is a pl259 and not a n type.i will need to go to runcorn tomorrow and get some pl259 and i may look at getting a 20m mobile aerial to get abit of hf work in.
