Re: N Connectors



I used them on LMR-400 and they work perfectly. I haven't used 9913 in
years, too much moisture ingress, condensation problems,  and wandering of
the center conductor. When it first came out, it was a wonderful addition to
the coax line, kind of a poor man's hardline. Now that the LMR series is
available, I wouldn't recommend 9913 to anyone.

I would advise anyone who wants the loss performance of 9913, but MUCH
better mechanical construction to look at Times Wire LMR-400.
