I use these as a positive lightning protection, I really like them...
I hate disconnecting and reconnecting cables, on anything! These little "push-on" connectors have greatly simplified that process. Now, when I hear of an approaching storm, it's only seconds and my gear is safe. Initially I was worried about signal loss using these connectors. But having used them for several months I have not detected any appreciable loss in signal. They have been a great investment for my shack!
The Male / Female UHF 'push-on' connectors provide a quick and easy way to disconnect your equipment in the case of approaching stormy weather. They also save wear and tear on the threads on transceivers and tuners.
The connectors work very well...
I remember push-on cable connctors in the 70's and 80's. They use to be on a plate with the radio and you could just grab the whole plate and bring it with so it would not get stolen. The RF connector would loosen over time but these are very high quality. I bought these primarily for approaching storm disconnects. And they work quite admirably!
I am certainly becoming a fan of these - even though our rainy season is over for the year. I use them to unplug during our lightning storms.
Good quality product
I just purchased four of these connectors.They are very well constructed ! They make connecting and disconnecting my antennas SO NICE ! Just push them on and pull them off.They also fit VERY snug and makes it so much nicer than having to reach behind my radio bench and screw them on and off. Makes it real nice if there is a storm in the area and I need to disconnect real fast ! NICE product I will purchase more. Steve / Lakeside, AZ.
