We have a 5402 LT without its cone antenna installed and it was working perfectly.
But later, after few years, it started giving a BAD signal.
It is mounted on a flange with 2 inches pipe under.
We did not installed the 2-inch cone antenna because it doesn't fit into the 40mm hole of the flange.
The pipe length under the flange is 530mm.
The tank height is 1500mm.
Total height of the LT from the "0" ref (bottom level of tank) is 1500mm + 530mm = 2030mm.
My questions are:
1. Is it because the cone antenna is not installed that's why it is giving a BAD signals now?
2. Can we retrofit the LT with a rod antenna? If yes, what are the things need to consider to retrofit the rod?
Thanks for your responses.

Thanks again, Ingemar.
But if that cut-to-fit cone antenna did not work, which among the 4 options below do you think is the best solution?
OPTION 1: Increase the hole size on the mounting flange so that the extended cone antenna can enter.
OPTION 2: Cut-to-fit the cone antenna.
OPTION 3: Use 5401 rod-type antenna and cut the nozzle height to 100mm.
OPTION 4: Use the cut-to-fit antenna of 5402 and cut the nozzle height to 100mm.
Or any other suggestions/options?
