Has anyone had any experience with Shakespeare's PL-259-CPL-G solderless PL-259 connectors on RG-213 cable?
These connectors can be seen at:
They even have a PL-258-CP-G crimp on barrel connector that directly connects two pieces of coax.
It replaces the PL-259>BARREL CONNECTION<PL-259 combo with just one fitting that has been discussed at length lately.
Seems if they were that great the ham suppliers would be selling them off the shelves but I would welcome anyone's experience whom may have tried them.
