I have been trying to repair my 4 beverage antennas.  Wires and terminations 
are good.  2 of the beverages work well, 2 are "dead"  I have checked the coax 
and connectors are ok.  Other than broken wires, what can go wrong with the 
transformer?  What the heck am I missing?  Short to the core?  I will try 
moving a transformer from a working Beverage to a dead one to see if that is 
the problem.  Both "dead" ones have RG-59 coax with foil and shield to them.  
The working ones have other types of coax. All have transformers from ON4UN 
that used to work great.  3 are 600' one is 800'  the 800' and one 600' are not 

I guess I should try the substitution of another transformer first...
