What is best for feeding receive antennas to your 6500 or 6700? What do you use?
Not a fan of the F connector, but in a pinch I guess they're better than clip leads :-)
I terminated all of my LMR240 and LMR400 cables, both Tx and Rx, with PL259s. I use PL259/BNC adapters on the Flex Rx ports. On the other end the PL259s connect directly to the SO239s on my Beverages, and to my DXE NCC-2 with PL259/BNC adapters. On my active antennas I use PL259/F adapters. For this application I doubt that 50/75 ohm adapter impedance mismatches or losses would make a noticeable difference. I don’t use adapters on the Tx side however.
When I move my actives to their permanent place (about 600' from the house), I'll switch to flooded and much cheaper RG6.
which you can't beat for stability. They are also watertight and take a lot of abuse (a car
braking on them isn't going to destroy them, although the cable might be torn).
I always take care to use selfamalgamating tape
which is also good aboard ship...
