Thread-topic: [CRTech] Quad Shield Connector

I’ll second the Canare recommendation- that’s standard stuff for EMF’s installations.  But I can say with complete confidence they can and do last outdoors if properly weatherproofed with a self-sealing tape like Scotch 2228.  It’s a good idea to wrap that with three layers of regular electrical tape keeping the first two layers under tension.  We use their RG6 on our satellite dishes.

I come from a TV background so my experience is probably skewed.  But I offer it anyway:

The best F-connectors on the market are made by Canare, in my opinion.  They have a crimp center pin that is superior to using the cable's center conductor.  However, they are expensive, require special tooling, and are generally for indoor use.
