A few days ago we had a discussion re pl259's. I mentioned there is a
pl259 type that goes on like an N connector and I love them. Joel
W3RFC at "The RF Connection" was kind enough to send me the part number
and his comments. They are: UHF-RFC17-01C. This is a pl 259 for
RG-213/214 clamp style. Center conductor can be drilled out with a #32
or #33 drill for LMR400 cables. Joel says "you can cut the gasket in
half for easier assembly." I have not needed to do this, yet. Braid is
clamped and only the center conductor requires solder. They go on the
cable in less than a minute.
His part number for crimp on pl259 for rg-58 (the original thread
question) is UHF-RFC17-01F-5.
