Hi Jim, you likely already make your own. It will be hard to beat a DIY  
adapter made with a short length of RG213 or LMR400 and N female one end/ UHF  
male other end.
You will need to upgrade your standard if you ever operate above 6m with  
significant power.

My standard RF  connector is UHF, and I adapt everything else to it.  
I've been able  to buy Amphenol adapters with a male N and female UHF, 
but have not found  Amphenol adapters with female N and male UHF.  Yes, I 
can find cheap  junk adapters, but they fall apart and are cheaply made, 
often with tiny  center conductors.

Does any know of a source for good quality N female  to UHF male?
