I checked with Davis RF, etc..& they only had "N" connectors...They "did" the piece of 120 ft Heliax I bought from them 2 yrs ago (installed UHF conn)..but now they only have "N"s..(Don't want those)..Anyone know who sell's the 1/2" Heliax AND will install the UHF connectors too?

          Thanks!..73'..  Tom  N3ZC

I think I'll use LMR 400 & install my own connectors..but what a "bargain" though....for 60 ft of 1/2" Heliax with 2-UHF connectors...

"Hello Tom,
 
UHF Male are limited production now so price per connector is $125.00 each compared to $30 five years ago. Price would be $410.00 and 2-3 days lead time ARO."

First off, what are you using 1/2" Heliax for? The cuttoff for UHF connectors is 300Mhz. There isn't much demand for UHF connectors on Heliax, that is why it is not "offered". Type N is what commercial and military uses, but then I have only been a HAM for two days...

Good luck!

I have a piece of surplus hardline with N connectors, and I used adaptors to fit it with the rest of my coax run.

Ordinary PL-259/ SO-239 connectors are commonly referred to as "UHF" connectors.

Tom,

Checkout cable assemblies and interseries adapters at the CableXperts website:
http://www.cablexperts.com/cfdocs/cat.cfm?ItemGroup=11&itmsub=0&bskt=0&USA_ship=1&c=0

According to the website, you can get 1/2" Heliax assemblies made with N connectors installed, then use the appropriate adapters to get back to UHF type connections.

I'll be reworking my coax in the near future, and will be purchasing similar materials.
