Abstract:

A termination tip for submarine buoyant cable antenna systems can quickly be converted from grounding to insulating and vice versa any number of times. The nosepiece assembly fits over a pin contact of wire and is screwed onto a connector that holds the wire. An O-ring between the wire and the nosepiece assembly seals out seawater. The nosepiece assembly is either insulating or conducting depending on the desired configuration.
