I don't have a solution for you, but when I was a working engineer, I
found that Pasternack was one of
the most expensive solutions (to anything!) there was. I never heard of
S.M. Electronics. Google will
give you a list of connector manufacturers and sales people. I'm with
Glenn--build your own! LMR-xx cable is a product of Times
Microwave. Excellent cable!
(If you can use LMR-400, it will be a lot cheaper, but you _can't_ use
regular type N connectors on it.)
On the other hand, type N connectors are a lot easier to use than the GD
UHF connectors, and
work a heck of a lot better--but you probably know that already.
