The stock cable RG-59 that comes with the antenna has f-connectors.
The F - BNC adapter is supplied is bad.
I tried to replaced it with Amphenol 242154,
but the center cable is to thick for the adapter center hole.
Looking for an adapter that would work.

Why not remove the f connector and push on a compression BNC? If you don’t have the tools a cable guy would probably do it for you? They sell BNC compression types at Lowe’s and Home Depot

To the best of my knowledge ST-2 antennas (all the different names throught out the years)came from the factory with RG6 coax I thought.

That way would of course be best, eliminate that bit of loss with the adapter, but just to be contrarian, a decent adapter is no farther away than Amazon. I got a pack of 6 gold-plated ones for under $10, I think it was. All were far better quality than the OEM ST-2 adapter that fell apart the first time I tried to use it.
