Someone asked me, what I'm doing with the Portable Antenna Cable. The main thing I've been doing is making it smaller. It's going from this: To This: Finally down to this: The latest approach seems to be the best and the strongest to date. I'm updating my old manual with this new approach. What is different about this way is that instead of joining two pieces of coax cable, I take the SMB pigtail and solder it directly to the connector. Thus lowering the loss and giving me the ability to make it shorter. It involves taking the connector apart Preparing the SMB connector Soldering it to the circuit board of the connector Replacing the Strain Relief with a rubber Grommet And Gluing it together. Look for another PDF in the coming weeks. Don't you just love these projects?
