Seems folks are making this way too difficult. Instead of cutting, as in
open circuit stub (high voltage there), go for the shorted stub, using a
pin and gradually move away from the end while watching the second
harmonic on a receiver. Once minimum is found. STOP! Cut the
coax and short it there. Voila! Done it and got great results from
nearby 600 W AM rig.
