Waterproof connectors

Postby rothackerben8 » Fri Feb 24, 2017 7:09 am

Hi,

I am making an antenna mast and need a way to change what antenna i want to use for which device ( scanner, UHF transciver).
I am wondering if i could use waterproof coax connectors. If you know of any websites where i could get these, or if you have any better ideas, pleas comment
. Thanks

there are the likes of Neutrik however they are 75ohm bnc connectors,

I would personally suggest making a board inside and run jumpers from it to your equipment, may not look pretty but will work none the less
