I appreciate your opinion, but try not to justify your position by
adding in Type-N and BNC into this discussion, I never spoke about
them. All I'm saying is the PL259 is a poor connector to use in high
power applications which is based on physics, and the variables of mode,
length of transmission, and SWR.
