With the gland fitted I spliced the aerial cable together and called the Coast guard for a radio check. No problem at all, a good strong transmission. The mast lamp cable also uses this gland now meaning I can do away with the aweful connector on the other side. It's not connected yet but this and the aerial connectors will live in a Gewizz box which I have fitted inside.
