Re: Which BNC-to-SMA Adapter?

ed palmer <flhtci97@...>

I have found another SMA to BNC adapter that works well with the VX-8R. It is the BNCJ-SMAP adapter from Diamond Antenna. I don't know how it would work for other handhelds so your mileage may vary.
The adapter is wide at the base and mates up well with the rubber gasket around the SMA jack on the VX-8R. The last half turn will require one to hold on to the rubber gasket around the SMA when tightening down the adapter to keep the gasket from spinning.
