Oh I've ruined a few too (using that hand drill i mentioned).

No snow down here, but spent the weekend at Elk Mt. in PA, 17" on the ground when I left sunday night!

K2FOX .... Just a note .. FSJ4-50B is 1/2" hardline, not 1/4".

Also I'd be interested in more info on how you are able to use regular PL-259's on 4-50B.

I'm good in QRZ.COM.

KI6LO:

You are correct, it's FSJ2-50, and it's more like 3/8 inch. PL-259 works perfectly as I described.

Never tried a PL-259 on 1/2 heliax...

Lon:

You are full of beans, OM, not only can it be done, but it can be done with a handheld electric drill.

Sure, it's not optimal, but I needed an adaptor, the store was not open.  Heck, I've even forgotten which cable it's on it worked fine.

And no, I would not do it regularly, there's no profit in it.

Course you can also make it fit by stripping the RG-8X external jacket and using the smaller adaptor with the bare shield going into the adaptor.

I use 8X for my HF dipoles to keep hanging weight down, I use the fatter stuff for VHF/UHF where appropriate.  I run no more than 200 watts currently.
