Re: 500 times for the SMA


Worn out dozens over the years.  I'd add 500 is optimistic.
Failure mode is center socket looses flex and fails.
Second most common the center pin of cable breaks loose
from the internal wire.

Best are the stainless steel steel types, the gold ones are eye candy
and generally fail faster though are easier to solder.

Please reply on list so we can share.
