DXE does sell UHF right angle adapters.

DX Engineering Part Number: DXE-532
Connector Adapter, Coaxial, Right Angle Style, UHF Female, SO-239, UHF Male,
PL-259, $5.95 Each


I'd recommend going with Amphenol 83-1AP, Mouser part number 523-83-1AP.

OTOH, I can personally attest to DX Engineering
selling excellent "no name" UHF fittings & adapters.
They sell some Amphenol Connex.  Unfortunately,
DXE doesn't seem to offer any right-angle UHF
connectors or adapters.

The guy who posted the warning about right angle connectors failed to 
say that it applies to cheap, no-name connectors, not Amphenol. The 
cheap junk IS made with tiny springs -- I learned the hard way. Amphenol 
connectors are well made.

Most of us have an iron-clad rule about coax connectors -- if it doesn't 
say Amphenol, and if it's not vintage MIL-spec stuff, it's probably junk 
and should be avoided.
