As I write this I am looking at a cheap 90 degree adapter that caused me 
significant pain about a year ago.  In the middle of a QRO contest I noticed 
the Alpha's output was becoming erratic.  Great, I thought, something is 
failing in "old reliable".  On a hunch I grabbed the 90 degree adaptor on the 
input of the antenna tuner and found it too hot to handle - literally, I 
received a blister on my thumb.  Of course I swapped it out immediately, or as 
quickly as I could as it cooled - the amp went immediately back to its old 
smooth, solid output.  The Amphenol 90 degree on the output of the tuner was as 
cool as a cucumber.

Moral to me - not all connectors, adapters, whatever, are equal.
