well, if I understand Ted correctly, it seems to work if the wire is removed but not when it's present. I could see that the simply act of changing it out allowed a connection that was marginal to temporarily appear better but I would be at a loss as well as to why this would occur.

I just want to see the issue isolated and since the wire appeared to be at the core of the problem in the first place, it seemed worth finding out if the wire was indeed the issue. I'm still not clear about it.

I have been impressed in the past just how far up into the insulation that decay can occur coming entirely from the ends. We had that at one point with the wire on the Direct TV lines. It went back two feet- astounding. The outer insulation appeared perfect.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
