Took the thing apart and now dont remember. Does it make a difference??? Which photo is correct?? Top or Bottom?? There is a slight difference in the gold band if you look close.

thanks

Should not matter, that is simply the "load" to make the antenna appear to be the right length relative to the 27 mHz wave length.

To make sure, you should just put it together, test your SWR and if it is too high, reverse it.

very close to the same, from what is seen.... the bottom one will probably need a slightly longer tip to tune it so it might make a slight difference if the antenna is already tuned... otherwise there should be no significant difference... but that is all assuming that there are no other components inside that coil... like a capacitor tapped into the coil... if that was the case, it would make a difference...
