I understand real estate on some of today's 'mini' ht's is in short supply but, can't designeres come up with a connector that is a little more robust than an SMA?  That center pin is about as fragile as anything I have ever encountered in a connector.  It is great for a situation where you put it together once and forget it.  In the real world, where many connector matings are likely to occur, failure of that pin is only a matter of time.

Doesn't someone make a SMA to BNC adapter that you can put on your radio and leave? Then the only change needed is to just untwist the BNC and the SMA connection is left undisturbed. Since I don't undo my SMA much, I don't feel the need to use an adapter.

Yeasu makes an SMA to BNC adapter. I use it. But I have seen some more robust adapters that have rubber grommits which help seal the connection and also support the bigger BNC. I wish I knew where to get them.
