I had a vintage Radio Shack Discone antenna stored away. Apparently the storage place was not vermin-proof. Anyways, the damage was about 2 inches long outside braid half chewed off. I applied epoxy glue to prevent water damage. I am thinking of wrapping electrical tape around the cable from top to bottom. I would like to use this antenna for 2 meters (TX/RX). Any damage I could do to my 5 watts HT if I use the antenna in this condition? Attached is the picture. Thanks.
