The resistance between the inner and outer of the connector to my Status 530 is circa 0.3 to 0.4 ohms and it is in perfect working order.

An earlier post suggests you are in a very strong signal area, have you a small tv you can take into the van and connect direct to the aerial?

Thanks Peter, I have just done exactly that, bought a good length of decent coax and bypassed the van's system and it is the best signal wI have ever had, so the fault is in the van's wiring somewhere - I was fixating on the multimeter readings, instead of checking the rest! Thanks for braving the cold.

Thanks Peter, that is very informative! It is set up differently than I imagined, having seen pics of the innards of the "flying saucer" type. They are pretty basic for the amount you pay aren't they? Thanks again,
