Re: N connectors vs the rest

Tangentially related, I would be interested in hearing/reading about the
theoretical and practical pro's and con's of the various connectors we use
in the higher frequencies of satellite communications. (BNC vs N vs UHF
types) I am new to this and have, for HF and run-of-the-mill 2M work, used
mainly UHF connectors or occaisionally BNC. Clearly, N-types are technically
better BUT the cost for these is high and they are just harder to get.

How big a trade-off does one make when using BNC or, heaven forbid, the
lowly UHF?

At what frequencies does the 'cost' in losses become too high? 140? 440?

What about 'less expesive' connectors? Or Amphenol's RF vs RFX connectors:
are RFX - or even cheaper ones - fine for us mere mortals?

Does anyone know of an online document that discusses the pro's and con's
from a practical aspect?
