PL259, Install a PL259 the easy way, Coax connector, PL259 with no solde...


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/qPIcT9SXNPs.  This is post #697.  I've always dreaded attaching PL259 connectors to coaxial cable.  I'm not the most coordinated guy, so close-in work like this often leaves me nervous. Now that I've seen this excellent video by Robert Sumpton, most of my fears are gone.  In this tutorial, Bob show us how to install a PL259 coax connector without soldering the shield braid, a proven method used by hams for over 35 years, by an Extra Class radio amateur, who has been a ham for 58 years. In this video, Bob uses copper braid RG-8 coaxial cable.  A nicely done, easily understandable presentation.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
