Got a new Beverage antenna up and getting the termination resistor(s) ready. to install? The resistance is spot on, now to keep it dry, you put it in some heat shrink. There, now for a re-check of the resistance... it has gone down in resistance !!! . You may have some of that somewhat conductive heat shrink tubing. Good idea to check the glue for conductivity before use.
I do not have a brand name as have purchased from multiple sources. It is more of a problem for higher resistance terminations like for Flag, Pennant, and Delta receiving antennas.
