Well even some of the Amphenol PL-259 connectors are hard to solder to.
Have been buying this easy to solder Amphenol P/N PL-259 lately from
( I am sure other vendors carry them )
It is Silver Plated so no soldering issues !
$3.13 ( Cheaper for quantity order )
I have no pecuniary interest in this matter
