The pin off my antenna broke off inside the BNC connector on the PSR500. Don't know how it happened, must have put a strain on it at some point. Can not get the broken pin out as it is recessed and I can't get hold of it. I ordered a new BNC connector but I noticed it is under some metal shields on both sides. I would prefer to remove only one, but not sure how this is connected and which one to remove. Not fun removing those as they are soldered in multiple places. Has anyone had this before and replaced the BNC? Doesn't look like a fun job and I don't want to tear up the scanner any more than I have to. I like the stock antenna, anyone know when i might get a replacement.
