    I would suggest buying the highest quality CORRECT connector you can find and afford, and installing it yourself.

    Adaptors, and short runs of cable with connectors on each end, increases the already high loss of the RG174 cable.

    Amphenol is considered one of the best quality connectors. Get the one that mates with your card, whatever it is, FME, R-TNC, whatever, and the connector made for the cable, which is RG174.

    hmm, good source..

    but i cant see why these would be the best connectors? how much improvement would these give you? may be a db or less ?

    isnt gold better than nikel as a conductoor?

    plus they have nothing that would solve my problem. im trying to get from a UFL to FME. Also the solution i found (see my post above with RESOLVED heading).. what do u think will be my loss?

    Yes, gold is a better conductor. You didn't click on the specs of the connector,
    "Electrical
    Impedance 50 Ω nominal
    Frequency range DC-200 MHz.

    Mechanical
    Mating M8XP .75 thd.
    Cable affixment
    Crimp

    Material
    Body, couling sleeve, male contact Brass
    Female contact Phosphor bronze
    Crimp ferrule Brass
    Plating Contacts: gold
    Other metal parts: Nickel
    Insulator Teflon or Delrin
    "
    Amphenol is the BEST connector out there. It is the "Ferrari" of connectors. What you are doing is using the honda, or maybe the Hyundai of connections.

    You HAVE TO REMOVE THE CONNECTOR THAT IS ON THE CABLE YOU HAVE FROM THE ANTENNA, AND INSTALL THE AMPHENOL CONNECTOR. No adaptors, no pigtails, just a cable and connector.

    Your average connector add about a .5 to 1.0 db of loss, so, FME MALE to FME FEMALE, to UFL is between 1.5 and 3 db of loss, which slashes your power between 1/4 and 1/2 and effects your reception as well.

    The Amphenol connector probably has a loss of less then .5, and probably closer to .2. That means, one connector, loss of .2 to .5 db, which is negligable.

    FME male to IPX cable ,SMA male to Female male

    Hi ,

    If you are not expert ,then it is difficult to crimp the FME male to IPX with cable 1.13 or 1.37.Since there is not sepecial FME connector for 1.13.Normally we crimp the FME connector for RG316 to fix with the IPX.,But the IPX cable is just worked for 1.13mm,1.37mm,or RG178.

    Yes ,it is a good idea if you crimp the cable yourself that you use the SMA to IPX cable ,then fix the SMA to FME male to connect with your antenna.

    If you do not want the pigtail cable ,you can see http://www.rfsupplier.com/CustomCoaxWizard.php whom can supply the customized cable .Or contact with this

    Good Luck !
