Sure is - used to connect two lengths of coax together. The coax has the male PL259s on the ends, and the barrel connector (PL258 - about 2 inches long) has two female connectors.


There ARE female UHF (as well as N) cable connectors -- both in the crimp-on series as well as the clamp-on series. Obviously they are not as common but in some applications they save the cost and the reliability hit of a barrel connector. Joel at The RF Connection can probably set you up with them.

I have been VERY happy with crimp-on connectors.  As long as you
use the right tool and do it right.
