Re: Question re: HT BNC Antenna Adapter

Hi Ken,

Anything in the feedline between the radio and antenna is going to cause some loss.  It's the nature of the RF beast.  That being said, the loss from a SMA to BNC adapter should be very slight.  What's more important is that SMA connectors are somewhat fragile, so constant connect/disconnects will cause it to fail.  So installing a BNC adapter is very much a good idea.  Quick quarter-turn off and on and you are protecting your HT's SMA connector.  A win-win all the way around.
