I've got to come up with a means of passing feedlines through a concrete block wall, in a spousally acceptable manner (ain't that ALWAYS the sticking point?!).  The coax feeds are no problem - I've gotten a bunch of SO239 barrels long enough to pass through the wall and land on faceplates in the living room.  The balanced lines are another story.  I was thinking about drilling holes and passing parallel sets of threaded brass rod through the wall, inside rubber tubes for weather/bug sealing.  Anyone else tried this?  (Oh, and before you suggest the old "board in the window" trick, that's right out because the windows are going away in favor of french doors :-) ).

Why not put two PL-259's on your ladderline and connect to two thru wall SO-239 barrels? Do the same thing inside, and you are set. Just use the center pin on each connector.

Rather than putting PL-259s on your ladderline, bananna plugs on your ladderline will plug right into the SO-239 center sockets if you use UHF feedthrus.
