    Difference between 2118 and 2118x recievers?

    Hello,
    I have the 2118x receiver in my summit and it failed because of a cut antenna. So I threw a 2118 receiver in it and it works great so is there any major difference between them? I am needing to buy a replacement because I am only borrowing the receiver
    Thanks guys,

    I think I read once that the x has a sensor port for something... not even sure if it is or was ever used. lol

    X or non-x, it will work. So will the 6518 receiver.

    How much of the antenna still exists?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Everything until the flexible part after the metal piece at the tip

    Your current Rx may be fixable...

    There are 4 layers in the antenna wire...

    1) Core; the part that actually receives signal
    2) Core insulation
    3) Shielding braid
    4) Outer insulation

    If you are very careful, you should be able to remove layers 3 and 4 3.125cm from the end of the wire. I would first cut the tip so it is a clean break instead of a tear, then measure down and start dissecting it with a very sharp knife.

    Below the tip... or take the metal part off and start there.

    The only part of the antenna that does any work is the last 3.125 cm.

    So even if I take off the metal piece that will make the antenna work? even though the flexible tip is completely gone? Im not saying your wrong I just don't know enough about this
