The key when putting the connections on the end of the cable was patience and making sure you dont bolux up the sheath on the cable where it connects to the fittings. Work accurately, have good stripping tools, a sharp exacto knife, and a good solder gun. Soldering the connection is the best way.

The fitting SD has recoomended os a good way to do it and even though we have a keel stepped mast we have a similar disconnect between the cable to the top of the mast, and the on to the radio.
