 To just add my 2-cents to the discussion, I purchased connectors for
LMR-400 from DEM for my first experience with this cable, and found the
PL-259 style N-connectors a "bitch" to assemble.  Then I found a source of
connectors from RF Parts that is the more std compression clamp style and
they are a breeze to assemble and never had an SWR problem up to 2401 MHz.

So to each their own.  The RF Parts no. is RFN-1002-1SI...and works with
both LMR and 9913 cable.

PS:  I concur on LMR cables!
