Top Customer Reviews
The SO239 end of the cable has a fortified bit of black heat-shrink tubing that keeps the coaxial cable from kinking right at the crimped retainer of the connector. There's another piece of heat-shrink tubing on the SMA-F cable connector, again as a way to anchor the miniature coax cable.
The cable itself is flexible, but resists kinking. The connectors both have a bright, golden colored center pin that will reveal any tarnishing or dirt. The insulation to the outer threads looks like a high quality dielectric, but the texture does not resemble the familiar Teflon insulation.
Notice the lock nut on the SMA-F cable connector. This is not easy to use in practice, since it goes into a slightly recessed chassis-mounting connector on the radio that ordinarily receives a rubber antenna. But, it's possible to fully seat the connector into the radio without having to use the locknut. By draping the cable down the back of the radio, it's easy to hold the cable and radio in the hand at the same time to minimize mechanical stress.
The use of this adapter cable makes it easier to use the radio than with a screw-in one piece adapter. The RG-58 A/U coaxial cable to the mobile antenna is NOT right there at the radio. Instead that cable and its PL259 are out of the way and hanging below the radio while in use.This probably minimizes the mechanical stress on the connector inside the radio.
I have not noticed any significant reception difference from the slight loss of having an additional connection in the line, compared with a one piece adapter SO239->SMA-F.
While this design takes some of the strain off the radio's connection like a direct SMA-to-SO-239 adapter would cause, it's not quite perfect as I have to twirl the radio to unscrew the SMA connector. The safest and easiest way to disconnect this from the radio appears to be to unscrew the SO-239 side first then unscrew the cable from the radio, but it's kind of a pain. Still, for my intended purpose (the Baofeng is strictly an in-shack radio) it works well enough.
I will say that 6" seems a little short now that its in my hands and connected to the radio. You almost have to double over the cord and hold it along side your radio as to not put stress on any of the joints. Perhaps some 90* connectors and/or adding a BNC connector would make this a little less cumbersome. Even leaving the radio free standing and using an auxillary mic requires a bit of a balancing act. The heavy SO connector likes to topple the little Baofengs.
