I looked up this article in my files. It tells how to use a commercially available N-connector (UG-982 or UG-982/A) and adapt it, with fairly simple tools, to 7/8 inch hardline. You also need a piece of one inch diameter shrink tubing as part of the final assembly. If CQ will not provide a reprint, and if only a couple of people are interested, I could send a copy via snail mail. I assume that does not violate copyright. I also scanned the article. Perhaps because I am not experienced at scanning the file sizes are large - 3 pages, 3Mb, 4 Mb and 1 Mb. I have forgotten who asked the original question that started this thread. Hope this helps. ron w8gus.
