    Default Ham Radio antenna cable help

    Wondering if anyone can help or can point me to someone that can help. I have an antenna cable that has become separated from the PL259 connector and I need to replace the connector. It is wired through my truck so I would prefer not to rip the truck apart to replace the cable.

    I have essentially no soldering skills and would love help from someone who knows what they are doing.

    I am located in West side of Denver but happy to drive a little ways to get it fixed and can pay in cash or beer.

    Thanks anyone.

    I'm not exactly close, but I have the gear.

    You'll need a new connector.

    What size coax? 1/4"? 1/2"? For your reference on buying connectors those would be RG8X (LMR240) or RG8U (LMR400).

    This is the cable: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - So looks like RG58.

    I believe this is the connector that I need: https://smile.amazon.com/PL-259-Male...-no-redirect=1
