Re: RG-62 Cable (sources for)



Most of the radio techs I know are now crimping almost all their connectors.
I just went out and bought a crimp tool and dies myself, and a bunch of
connectors.  For installing connectors on low loss cable (foam or air
dielectric) crimping is the only way to go if you have to do more than a few
at a time.  For onesy twosy jobs the clamp on are fine.  Solder on
connectors are a bad idea on low loss cable.  Even on good old RG-58 or
RG-213 the crimp on jobs make a nice fast installation.  Just my .02.
