Here is a copy of my correspondence I sent yesterday. I'll post their response when I receive one.

---------------------------------------------
Subject: WiNRADiO AX-24B Discone Antenna 400 - 4000MHz

The specifications on your web site indicate the AX-24B discone antenna is equipped with a "UHF" connector. Is that a SO239/PL259 type connection? If so, it's not suited for the frequency range your antenna claims to be designed for.

Please advise.

Thank you,

What a funny way of asking the question! I can't wait to see what they say. I mean, those UHF's are good for like...800MHz TOPS. It would not be hard to install an N connector though, depends on the coax.

Yep, it is the difference between American and British English I believe.

Check = Cheque
Color = Colour
Center = Centre

Hot dog & fries = Meat Pie & chips

Sorry, threw the last one in because I am hungry!

Back on topic.....

With the Winradio discone- I would very surprised if they have used an N connector. Winradio are fairly local to me here in Melbourne (Aus) and I have never been able to get a discone with an N connector locally.
If they answer in the positive- then will seriously consider getting one.

What the heck is there to listen to at 4000 MHz? How many receivers go to 4000 MHz? I have one receiver that goes to 2000 MHz and have yet to hear anything above 1400 MHz.

Dear ******,

Yes, this is indeed a SO239 connector. We do agree this does not appear
correct, but, interestingly, most discone antennas do in fact use this
particular type of connectors. These are not in fact standard off the
shelf connectors, but machined parts that form an integral part of the
antenna.

I have attached a VSWR plot for your information.

Best regards,
