I think, though, that the commercially viable application space for UHF
connectors is somewhat restricted. I doubt you're going to see a huge
commercial market for things like 100 foot premade cables with UHF. The
typical commercial application (I think..) is running the cable from an
antenna to the radio, which is a sort of "install once and forget" thing.
