[TowerTalk] Power limitation for N-Connectors

Setting up a vertical on 40, but about 300 feet from the shack.  Plan to 
use used 1/2 inch heliax LDF4-50A.  Someone, who might be wrong, said N 
connectors are limited to 500 watts.  That's probably at UHF/VHF 
frequencies...but got me wondering.  Actually I would prefer to use 
PL259/SO259's, but would have to round up those connectors (L44U's).

Any problems re N connectors for full power below 30 MHz?
