So, as it turns out, HRO had a duplexer with an N connector on the  
antenna side. I just need to see about changing the connector on the  
antenna (and actually mounting my N-connectors), and I don't have to  
change the connector on the radio.

My PL-259s were all silver-plated. So are the Ns, but they are not  
crimp-on; I'll still have to solder them. The part that gets soldered  
is of substantially lower mass than the PL-259, so hopefully it'll go  
better. Sigh.
