Re: Connectors to Coax installation



I *know* this is going to catch some flames, so consider the flame suit on.
Dave, have you considered crimp-on connectors?  They are extremely easy to
use and quick too.  Times-Microwave makes crimp on connectors for their
feedline.

Before you totally dispel this as not a good electical connection, consider
the fact that 7/8" hardline (used around here on all 2m and 70cm repeater
installs) is nothing more than a mechanical connection.  I have used
crimp-on and solder-on connectors at my station and cannot tell a difference
between the two.
