RE: Source for F to N/SO239 Adapters

The Drake (at least the ones Mark Fossum got out of Japan recently) have a
female F connector on the IF side. I doubt anyone who went to the trouble of
building a high performance receive system would want to lose most of that
signal by running either  RG58 or RG6 with an F connector on it down into
their shack. Better to use the adapters I found and run LMR400 or similar
and keep that precious signal strength.

OK Steve, I'll bite, what am I going to need such adapters for my Drake?
