Thanks Don, I appreciate the input. Those Quicksilver kits look pretty nice and that is probably the route I'll end up going. Have you ever used any of their cable?

No, this is actually the first thing I've bought from them.  I usually buy cable from DX Engineering.  I actually have an order in with them now.  I'm replacing the 9913 on my hexbeam because that stuff wicks up water like crazy.

Their prices are comparable to anyone else and they ship free for a $100 order.  I also typically buy cable with the connectors attached since there is little difference in price after you figure in the cost of the connectors, but I'm having so much fun with my crimp tool...

73, and hope to hear you "on the wind" soon.
