I purchased a 102" whip and stainless steel ball and spring mount. I am in the middle of the install, and I see that the ball does not accept the standard RG58 connector. Due to the position of the CB and the way the wire is run, I really do not want to cut the wire and splice it the way the directions say. It will be extremely difficult to replace the CB cable. Is this normal for the ball and spring mount? Was I given the wrong part? Is there an adapter I can either make or buy?
