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
quality connectors will do, then the rest of the ham population is purchasing
"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
casual hobby application and the associated budget for same".
