If You Can Get To BNC, You Can Get To Anything

That’s what Mad Phil taught me, back in the day, and it’s still true:

15 W Dummy Load - Stacked Adapters
15 W Dummy Load – Stacked Adapters

From the top:

  • 15 W dummy load with N female
  • N male to BNC female
  • BNC male to UHF female
  • UHF male to UHF male
  • UHF female on homebrew antenna mount

Obviously, I don’t have enough adapters: I need one with N male to UHF male.

I actually spent money to get from the reverse-polarity SMA connector on the Wouxun radios directly to UHF female, matching the cable to the antenna mount in one step.

Sometimes an unsteady ziggurat of adapters isn’t appropriate.
