I till last night thought I found the "Holy Grail" of a connector and
But maybe was blown down by a "Professional" That does all this "Radio
Stuff" for a living.
I always LOVED the old "N" connectors. With the big rubber clamping
thing inside for the shield. And always wished that method was available
on other connectors, even the old PL-259.
A few weeks ago I found them, Like this,
and I found a source, that is not only CHEAP, but in any combination
you could even dream of. So No losses from adapters. Like from LMR-400
to Male BNC, or even LMR-400 to female SMA.
I bought three connectors.
(2) LMR-400 to Male BNC
(1) Male BNC to Female SMA
Total cost only 9 bucks and 3 days shipping time!
OK, I was sooo happy I had to bring them to the club meeting last night
to let everyone else know of this find. And a guy that works for a land
mobile company. They do all the radio work around here for the police,
FD etc. And he said he wished he knew I wanted them. They got a box of a
hundred in the storage room. A lot of equipment comes with the
connectors like these but they refuse to use them. He said they are not
reliable and the ground connection fails.
I never heard of this before. What is everyones thoughts here?
