    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I got a trunk lip mount that doesn't have the BNC connector attached. I can crimp RJ-45 plugs just fine (I'm not perfect though) but BNC is out of my league. I don't have a crimper and I can't justify the cost of buying one to crimp one plug, nor do I know how to crimp properly.

Anyone willing to meet up?

You can just get a solder or screw-on type. The screw ons usually come apart if handled a bunch. Be sure you get the right size for RG58.
Crimp ons are OK but you must use the right tool. I just bought a new one cause some mexican swiped mine out of my truck. $60
