I would Change my order. The connectors I have used certainly *Could* be removed and reinstalled, but I wouldn’t recommend doing it intentionally. The center conductor is Press-Fit, so I’d want to avoid any un-neccesary expansion that removing and reinstalling might cause. It’s also Possible the factory installed ones could be of a different design, I’ve always installed my own, It’s not difficult, even without the special Stripping tools, just a careful hand with a razor knife and a file will work. I have the Comscope tools and they seemed to work just fine on the RFS equivalent, though I’m sure it’s not recommended.

           Darcey is correct. I’m pretty sure that standard procedure is to only have the upper connector factory–installed. 1) You might need to adjust / trim the length of the coax (at the bottom) once it is attached at the upper end; 2) Having the lower connector pre–installed could present complications with building entry / port entry.

I know many of you have used RFS cable. I've got some 1 5/8" on order with connectors already installed but when I read the manual I see that I need to install some ferrite chokes on the transmitter end and they won't fit over the connector. How hard is it to take the connector off and put it back on? OR should I change my order to not have it installed and I install it on site?

Thanks for your sage advice...
