Crimp connectors are becoming more and more popular in commercial type
installations, however I highly recommend soldering the center condutor if
you use such and animal.
My personal preference is soldered connectors, to me it just seems to be a
more secure method. This is also what we use for ALL installations at work.
Especially above 30MHZ, I would have to think that the soldered connections
are the better way to go(speaking from an electrical standpoint).
I could be completely wrong, but if it takes you THAT much longer to put on
a soldered connector versus a crimp one you are not doing something right.
All the time is spent in the prep of the cable anyway. Crimp time 20
seconds, solder time 1 minute...if time is that esential then I am in the
WRONG line of work!!!
