          Comments about RadioShack Twist-On Coax PL-259 Connector:

          Use the right cable, follow the prep instructions to the letter, and this connector works just fine. The tip crimps to a diameter smaller than the pin so there's no problem fitting it into the jack. Like all twist connectors, it won't take a lot of handling or strain, so only four stars.

          Comments about RadioShack Twist-On Coax PL-259 Connector:

          I had no problem putting these things on RG/59 cable. I soldered the tip instead of crimping. Filled the cable end with silicone for water tightness. Also used a professional wire stripper to cut the wire back. Makes the job very easy!

            There is no subsistute for a good soldered connection, especially when RF is involved.

                Comments about RadioShack Twist-On Coax PL-259 Connector:

                The connection between the ground braid and the outer sleeve of the connector is made by prayer. There is no substitute for a soldered or crimped connection here!
