Can anyone tell me how to prepare this RG-6 (F-6) for snap-n-seal
connectors? Do I fold the braid back over the jacket? If so, how far?

And is the same true for RG-11 (F-11)?

The temp is going to drop here in two days and I won't be able to do this
after that in time for the Stew Perry. Since the list is in moderated mode,
I'd appreciate a cc to my e-mail address.

There's not time to buy the coax stripper.

Thanks in advance!

73, Mike
