I have been looking for the old style connectors for some 7/8" Heliax I
have for *years*. They are rare. The hardline model number I have for my
7/8" is FHJ5-50A and the 'N' connector numbers are 45AN (N-female) and 45AW
(N-male). I've run across some 1 1/4" connectors (concentric outer spiral)
at Dayton but the 7/8" are nowhere to be found.
