Upgrading the Coax on a TV Dipole Antenna for Improved Reception

Over on his YouTube channel Corrosive has uploaded a useful video showing how to modify a standard TV dipole to make it better for general radio use. Many TV dipoles come standard with twin lead, or very poor quality coax cable. Corrosive shows in his video how simple it is to modify and improve one of these by adding high quality coax with a BNC connector.

These TV dipoles are great as general purpose antennas, and are especially useful for making V-dipole antennas for NOAA/Meteor M2 reception.
