I’m having to repair my Bandhopper and replace the wire section connected to the coax shield. Obviously I had to tear up the protective blob at the coax/wire junction. Does anyone know what they use to protect that? Seems a bit hard/tough to be hot glue.
It actually wasn’t the orange panel in my case. One of the wires appears to have broken inside the insulation right where the sharp bend is as it passes through the orange panel with the black padding around it.
Time to hit Harbor Freight for a glue gun this weekend while they are having their sale.
Yes Andy that’s the one. It also says Neutral Cure on the outside. So if you are having a bad bout of the neutrals this is just the thing.
I also use it in PL259 plugs for thinner coax to hold the cable in place and reduce stress on the soldered bits.
The original used to remind me of eating fish and chips out of a roll of newspaper on winters evenings while waiting for the bus home. Vinegar and salt? Yes please. That’s when 6 pence had buying power. And you could hear dx on a 2 valve regen set.
Well, got response from Martin and he said it was “hot-melt adhesive” (aka Hot Glue). Looks like it worked! Spliced in a repair wire, was 1.1 or better on the CW portions, so I went ahead and tacked it down. Not too shabby if I say so myself.
