you need T's for whatever kind of connector you use.  if they are F then you need F T's, if they are pl-259's then you need uhf T's.

Thanks to all for quick reply with good ideas.

David, K1TTT, most of people suggest crimp connectors but you wrote "T´s for 
them"...standard T´s does not work with crimp connectors ?

Get some of the crimp connectors and T's for them, that will work just fine.

It is near of topic here...maybe someone can help.

I have few meters of RG-6 coax cable...about 100 m.

We need Coax Stubs for our contest station...we are planning work in next
ARRL CW in Feb.

Our Max Power is 500 watts.

I have all information about K2TR coax stubs designs.

I am worry about my RG-6 cable...the braid is Aluminum (Al) instead of
Cooper (Cu), so, i can´t solder the braid. I think the solution is an
adapter to make a good contact with the shield side of the PL-259...

Any tips or ideas?
