You used the wrong connector. There are dozens of different N connectors 
for every size of cable you can get. Go to whoever sells LMR cable and 
get the correct connectors. They can be rather expensive for the larger 
50ohm and 75 ohm N connectors are not intermixable as the center pins 
are different diameters.
