I am trying to build a mobile coax assembly for my radio.  I cannot find this specific type of SO-239 connector though.  Does anybody have any idea where I could find one?  Thanks. ....ok, apparently I cannot attach a photo.  Here is a link to a website showing one.  Its about a fifth of the way down the page.  Its the Diamond C213

An SO239 makes a VERY poor antenna base, for a variety of reasons especially for an HF one. Several of the import antenna companies use them which is unfortunate.

If this is a VHF/UHF antenna, you're much better off with an NMO. That said, some of the import NMOs are not directly compatible with a genuine Motorola.

What are you trying to accomplish?
