Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Solder a PL-259 and Ring Connectors to RG-8X (mini 8) Coax Cable. Post #834.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABO45xFZCv8.  I've never been very good at attaching PL-259 and Ring connectors to coaxial cable. I can do the task, but I really don't like it.  I may have to change my mind after seeing this well-made, simply explained video from Dave Turlock (KG0ZZ).  It's really a simple process if one takes the job step-by-step and is careful about following the correct procedure.  In this video, Dave shows how he solders a PL-259 and the Ring Connectors to RG-8X (mini 8) coaxial cable.  He then shows how he makes connections for a 2 meter vertical dipole, a triband yagi antenna with dipole elements, and a small quad and quagi antennas.  Nicely done video.
