Someone really needs to calm down some.  It's a connector for hobby 
applications for heavens
sake.    Hams, like consumers in general , vote with their pocketbook.  It's a 
patronizing attitude that simply because one takes the hobby to the level where 
only Amphenol
quality connectors will do, then the rest of the ham population is purchasing 
out of
"ignorance".  There's nothing wrong with a properly assembled bakelite 
dielectric 259 for
example,  ...hams used them for decades without problems, and continue to do so.

It might be more accurate to say "Most connectors sold to hams fully meet their 
requirements of
casual hobby application and the associated budget for same".
