You may wish to try another option of N-connector type as well. Cable
Experts sells a two piece N connector that is really nice. Works up to
about 2 GHz, so it's not as good as a standard type N. The center pin and
main body are soldered onto the coax just like a PL-259. The the gasketed,
knurled shield nut screws down on top of it all. It's great.
