Re: QCX mini: RF output BNC or SMA #poll-notice


The Crunchbird
 

The reason the QCX mini is so it can be easily transported and used in the field, It therefore needs to be somewhat robust. SMA connectors are only designed for fifty or sixty connections and disconnections. They are far too weak to ever be of use in a transceiver that is to be used for portable - field use. Imagine going all the way to the top of a mountain to operate and having the antenna connector fail. I will take the BNC over an SMA any day of the week. Dave. N2SNĀ
