Default Coax Connectors

Does anyone have the connectors/tools and know how to replace a coax connector for a CB cable? I want to route the cable into the cabin thru a grommet. Then add a new connector. of your choice for someone who can help.


Thanks

I have a box full of all kinds of connectors and can solder or crimp, whichever you want. I dunno what HRO charges for a standard PL-259 but I think the standard solder-type Amphenol ones I get are about $2 and the RG-58 adapter is I think about $0.50.

Actually, including how to check the inner and outer connectors for conductivity (hopefully lack thereof) afterwords. You must have got the wrong guy!
