I haven't had much use for it lately so I'd be willing to part with it. Shoot me a PM if interested.
Did the packaging have attenuation figures for that SMA-BNC adapter? I would never use one of those on an HT to run a duck. A mag mount, sure, in a pinch. I looked into them years ago when the SMA became the Yaesu standard (with my FT50, iirc) and the attenuation on the one HRO had was something close to 15db.
