Try a hotter soldering iron.  If you use one that's not hot enough, you spend
too much time heating the connector and the coax melts.  A 250 watt iron is just
about right, and if the connector or coax is anything but bright and shiny, use
a drop of liquid rosin.  Each hole should take about 2-3 seconds, max.  Let each
hole cool before doing the next one.
