Also, a good idea to solder the center conductor copper wrap to the PL-259
tip. The crimp toll does a good job but there are rumors that after several
years oxidation between the copper and PL-259 tip causes noise on VHF-UHF

Depends how you define standard PL259...
I buy silver, usually made in USA, PL259s from RF Connection and they
work fine. Just put one on yesterday, as a matter of fact. I have seen
some with thicker walled center pins in which case the thicker center
conductor of LMR400 won't fit.
