Abstract : A high-voltage anticorona connector and method of use rely upon a hand rotatable wheel which is attachable to a threaded stud on a mounting flange for rapidly connecting and disconnecting an adaptor plate to a helix coil of a radio frequency transmit system. The handle of the wheel is ring shaped to preventing corona discharge from the area surrounding the connector.
