Hi   Stan,

The lenght of each electrical 1/4 wavelenght of my original phasing harness
for the A144-20 T antenna is exactly 34 cm or 13,38 inches from tip to tip
on the crimped PL connectors.

If  i connect one end of this cable to the barrel and the other end to the
"T" than i get 34,375 mm or 13,533 inches from the middle of the barrel 
to the middle of the "T" and this is correct for 144 MHz

Dont forget that this type of antenna was produced as well for non amateur
frequencies and the size of your phasing  harness is not for 144 MHz  but
for a higher one around 183 MHz
