I can't vouch for anyone else here but I can vouch for VO1KS. I have been to his place of work on the odd occasion. Locally we call the site "RF Alley".

Here is a good review of UHF versus N connectors. Note the return loss figures at 2m and 70cm especially.

Really? I don't recall seeing you there. Must have been during Mike's days.

[QUOTE=Captain Kilowatt;351981] I have been to his place of work on the odd occasion. Locally we call the site "RF Alley".

I'd like to spend at least two months at RCI in Sackville, NB to better figure the place out before it gets dismantled. With ongoing budget cuts it seems to be only a matter of time until it gets shut down. Even 70kW+ FM tends to get dwarfed next to a pair of 350kW shortwave transmitters. No PL259s there...

Here are some test results of a variety of UHF connectors compared with N, BNC, SMA and TNC.

Somehow I missed this post. Yeah Warren it was several years ago. I can't remember Mike's last name but I believe it was him. There was another guy there as well that I remember, long hair and had a boat. I was there the day after Hurricane Juan checking on the CHFX tx and was talking to him. He told me rode out the storm in his boat in the harbour. Come to think of it, didn't he used to work for MBS? Used to live at the CHNS tx site for a while. Maybe I am confused and "Mike" and "the other guy" are one and the same. Anyway been there a couple times. Even borrowed a spec analyzer from you guys once a loooong time ago.

Wayne worked with MBS for 27 years and lived at the AM site most of that time. Long hair Greg owned the boat. Are you thinking Mike Maxwell from MBS? He was there only a couple of years.
