So I decided that I wanted to replace the F to N connector/adapter at my FA antenna connection. Ordered this from Amazon:
Quick arrival. However, after getting all setup on the roof to solder, etc, I discover that the crimp tube will not slide over the RG6. I go to the garage where there’s two rolls, two different mfg. Will not slip over. I did manage to get the tip soldered on, cable sized up right to push the connector on. All is good except no crimp. Well, I came this far and really want to see if my non-weatherproof, two adapter connection was harming me. I wrapped the cable in several layers of aluminum foil, then two pieces of self amalg tape, then zip ties. It’s all self-supporting anyways (the cable) so it won’t come off.
Will monitor and see if my old connections were compromised.
