Thanks, I had only seen the $30 clamp ons there.

I've been using a crimp type N-Connector with a Hex nut on LMR-600 that is 
an excellent connector. Much better than any of the crip or clamp on types 
that we normally use on the LMR-400/9913 types of cable. Those are what sold 
me on using crimp ons. <:-)) They are also about a 1/3rd the price of the 
clamp ons for LMR-600  and quick to install even with the center soldering.
