Topband: Vertical resonance/bandwidth changed

Thanks for the comments and suggestions...found the problem to be my buried coax which the gophers seemed to like. It was chewed through to the center conductor in several places. This caused the resonant freq to shift upwards about 15 khz and the 2:1 swr bandwidth more than doubled from 30khz to 80 khz. The swr curve was normal except broader.
