The 7-16 Din connectors are wonderful They are readily available for Heliax 
 and LMR 600 and larger cables. Ebay has plenty for Heliax and Times 
Microwave  Cable distributors have or can get them for LMR cables.
They are made for smaller cables like RG213 and LMR400 but harder to  find.
After all of this, keep in mind that your equipment and antennas also need  
to use these type of connectors. Otherwise you are just throwing your money 
 away by using them elsewhere, unless you find a really good deal on them.
The 7-16 DIN connectors use a similar procedure  to install as the N type 
on the LMR and Heliax cables..

Better fit, better construction, more rugged,  higher ratings to higher 
frequencies, and just generally better all the  way around.  I under 
stand the cell and cable companies are  standardizing on them (for other 
than the 75 ohm hard line) so with the  large market the price *should* 
be coming down and the availability going  up.  They kinds look like an N 
connector on steroids, but they really  are much better.  As Hector said, 
they are the ones the big boys are  using.
