Where possible we prefer to use Silver plated connectors for best conductivity!
N Male Connector The N connector (in full, Type N connector) is a threaded RF connector used to join coaxial cables. It was one of the first connectors capable of carrying microwavefrequency signals, and was invented in the 1940s by Paul Neill of Bell Labs, after whom the connector is named. N connectors are the most common WiFi Antenna connections and are also widely used in HAM and other Amateur Radio applications. UHF Male PL-259 Connector The UHF connector design, from an era when , also called the Amphenol coaxial connector, is a World War II threaded RF connector UHF referred to frequencies over 30 MHz. Originally intended for use as a video connector in RADAR applications, it was later used for RF applications. This connector was developed on basis of a shielded banana plug. F Connectors Straight SMA Connectors The F connector is a common means of connecting television signals. It is a type of coaxial RF connector commonly used for "over the air" terrestrial television, cable television and universally for satellite television and cable modems. It was invented by Eric E. Winston in the early 1950s while working for Jerrold Electronics on their development of cable television. In the 1970s it became commonplace on VHF television antenna connections, as coaxial cables replaced twin-lead, and later for UHF also. SMA (SubMiniature version A) connectors are coaxial RF Connectors developed in the 1960s as a minimal connector with a screw type coupling mechanism. The connector has a 50 Ω impedance. It offers excellent electrical performance from DC to 18 GHz. The outer shell of the male or plug connector has an inside thread and an inner pin, which can be confusing. In conventional SMA, the terms "male" and "female" refer exclusively to the inner pin or socket of the connectors. The male connector is also commonly referred to as a "plug", whereas the female connector is also known as a "socket" or "jack".

N Female Connector
Originally, the connector was designed to carry signals of up to 1 GHz in military applications, but the common Type N today handles up to 11 GHz comfortably. More recent precision enhancements to the design by Julius Botka at Hewlett Packard have scaled this to

UHF Female SO-238 Connector

An old standard, UHF connectors are generally usable through what is now known as the VHF and HF frequencies and can handle RF power levels 18 GHz. The connector is over one kilowatt. Despite hand-tightened and has an air gap the name it is rarely used between center and outer for actual UHF frequencies conductors. The coupling has a as they don't work well 5/8-24 thread. above 300 MHz.

Straight VS Reverse Polarity (RP) If you are among the majority confused by the Governments (FCC) boondoggle in connector governance join the crowd! We try to shed a little light here.

RP-SMA WiFi Connectors This just confuses people who intuitively know that pins are male and holes are female! Reverse polarity SMA (RP-SMA or RPSMA) is a proprietary variation of the SMA connector specification which reverses the gender of the interface, as shown in Photos below. The term "reverse polarity" here refers only to the connector gender, not in any way to the polarity of the signal. An RP-SMA MALE connector has the same external housing as a standard or conventional SMA, however, the internal prong or pin is replaced by a receptacle or female inner pin. Similarly, an RP-SMA FEMALE has a pin like a conventional male, and the connector keeps the female outer threads.

Straight TNC Connectors The TNC (threaded Neill-Concelman) connector is a threaded version of the BNC connector. a manufacturer of BNC connectors claims "In over 15 years and a many million BNC connectors we have no first hand experience of incompatibility between 50 ohm and 75 ohm types.. RP-TNC connectors are widely used by WiFi equipment manufacturers to comply with FCC regulations designed to prevent consumers from connecting antennas which exhibit too much DB gain and breach compliance. This connector is common on WiFi or Broadband Routers and Antennas from Cisco. The BNC connector is used for RF signal connections. Straight TNCs are used on Cellular. designed primarily for use in mobile phones and similar applications where size is an important consideration. Linksys and other lines of Wi-Fi products.
