Hi,
My VX5R SMA antenna connector in the equipment is damaged. How can I get a spare? I searched ebay, but couldn't find the exact connector. So please help me to find one.
Thanking You,
Ras

MIL-Spec SMA connectors are rated for 500 matings while the more commonly found Nickel Plated, Brass SMA connectors are ONLY rated for 100 matings.  While the size and electrical characteristics of this class of connectors makes them a great choice for design engineers, their mechanical characteristics make them a very likely failure point.

And, remember, the ratings are an average - some will survive more and some less.  Feeling lucky sailor?
