Some of you have written me about the cable that I need connectors for.  Well, it is an odd ball type of coax....here is the link to RF Parts.
  THe Newton Amateur Radio CLub is having trouble finding the connectors...N type ... any gender.  It seems that this is coax that might not be used much...or it is not being made anymore of something.  WE cot a 320 foot spool for free from a miss-order ... and I cannot disclose the source of the benifactor.  It was easier to give it away than go through the companies paperwork.  So, we accepted the gift and now we have trouble finding connectors.  The plan is to put it on a new county tower going up north of town and moving the local repeater to the location.  Apparently, our tech guy has called around and cannot find any connector.  We might have to make a connection ourselves...which is not a bad thing but I would rather not.
  Thanks for the help
