Sorry to be asking such a newbie question but.......
I am setting up a homebase using a Sigma Venom 1/2 wave High Gain Silver Rod antenna.
Prior to attaching the coax I decided to test it with an ohm meter by placing one probe on the antenna itself and the other on the mounting bracket and got a 0 ohms resistance reading - I was expecting to get an open circuit reading but I may very well be incorrect in that assumption. Is this correct or do I have a faulty antenna? I know this is a newbie question but I am very new to this.
Many thanks for your help.
