Lots of great input on this Dave , here's my slant .

I use the connector that is made for 9913 , and get it from

they are nice folks and have reasonable prices for great quality
connectors .

You can either specify Amphenol/Kings only or you will get a less
expensive "generic" connector , depending on what your spec's are I have
found their "generic" connector usually just fine for amateur use .....

I also at first filed the center conductor to make it fit on the N
connectors that I had at the time , but found this too mickey for me ;^}

Much easier to just slip the correct connector on it and be done with it

good luck :)
