You bet they're unreliable. I did a bunch of phasing harnesses back in
the 80s with cheap T connectors. Most were around at 100+ feet. It was a
real PITA replacing them as they crapped out. Amphenol forever!

Bottom line -- REAL Amphenol connectors are NOT lossy, but no-name JUNK
connectors and adapters CAN be VERY lossy, and unreliable.
