More bad cable.not shorted but very lossy 213.  Disappointed in that

I have now replaced all the beverage feedline with LMR-400, and reception is
now more like what I expect.

OK, we have some fundamental problem somewhere.  Now the antenna is acting
as if it were an open circuit.just a length of coax.

I think there's a fundamental issue here that I have not yet uncovered.
It's always something simple.always check the simple things before going
with the complicated things
