commstar said:3/8 coarse thread as I recall (been a longtime)- if that helps in your quest
The top deck has a 3/32" mini phone jack for an alternative antenna. The jack is threaded 6-32, but I haven't been able to find a suitable adapter with threads. I found something close - mini phone jack, BNC female, larger threads (8-32) - and re-cut the threads. This made the adapter very fragile and prone to break off (in the radio). I gave up on that approach and started making adapters with short lengths of RG-174; this takes the stress of a large antenna cable off of the mini jack.
I used to have just the adapter you are asking about. I believe I bought it from Centurion Antennas many years ago. I just looked, but I can't find it. I believe the Centurion company has since been sold to another company, so I don't know if the company who owns them now still sells that particular adapter anymore.shaft said:I appreciate the input, I've come across all those links in my previous Google searches with the exception of the salestores.com link. Thanks!
Im surprised that there isnt a true BNC adapter out there. The salestores site has the UHF antenna Im looking for so I'll just get some of those. Maybe Hamvention will bring me luck in finding what Im looking for.
Thanks all for your input.
