Yes it will work. You will have to cut the PL-259 connector off one end of the Cable,
strip the cable back to expose the center wire. Put / soldier a "D" Ring connector to
that center wire, ( D ring just big enough to go over the stud (Top one in Photo) that
is insulated. Now yo strip a little more from the Cable, exposing the Braided wire. Put a connector on it, and secure it to the Bottom Post. NOW, you have to be sure that the CENTER wire does not come into contact with the Braided wire. ( Center is
POSITIVE / BRAID is NEGATIVE) Mount every thing up, Put an SWR meter in line and adjust Antenna, if it's adjustable that is. Remove the Meter, hook the Cable back up,
and you will be as they say, 10-8.
Your cable should be made up as so
When Soldering use only ROSEN CORE SOLDER
DO NOT USE ACID CORE SOLDER
Make good clean connections and be sure you have NO COLD Soldier Joints.
