> //Hi Joe.  You may be disappointed, but Amphenol does *not* manufacture a
> PL-259 with silver plating and a Teflon dielectric.  It's not offered at
> all by Amphenol.  They make silver-plated Rexolite dielectric PL-259s (the
> famous and ubiquitous 83-1SP falls into this category), and they make
> Teflon dielectric, Astroplated PL-259's (very shiny plating, like
> electroless nickel) -- but not a Teflon dielectric, silver plated model.
> As far as I know, they never have.  Most of the "MADE IN USA" branded
> silver-Teflon PL-259s are not manufacturer branded but are manufactured by
> J&I in New Jersey, who has made these for decades.  I haven't had any
> problem with them, for the most part -- but perhaps 1-2% of them are not
> usable for me due to miscellaneous dimensional problems.  I just toss
> those and forget about it!  -WB2WIK/6
