bought me another trunk lip mount for my car for my NMO 40 and got it in and say i had ordered the wrong connector bnc female instead of male so i figured wth ill just clip the connector and replace it so i got my new connector in and went to put it on and go with it. So i go to put it on and then learn that its braided center instead of solid copper. so that was my first mistake then i tried to put on the crimp connector with a pair of pliers second mistake. well i got it on there and went for the yank test and it came off so i tried a couple more times then said screw this and went to radio shack today and bought a twist on connector and after a couple times fiddling with it i got it on and it works ok but not like i would really want it to. so the morel to the story is make sure you know what your ordering before you order it even the coax...
