    Sma 90 degree connectors

    I guess I have gotten some cheap 90 degree connectors from somewhere.... they are comming apart in the middle... Where can I get some quality fittings.. I have ordered from so many places I dont know whats what.... Need to start with new quality stuff!!!!!!

    Just solder the point where they are breaking.

    All these 90-degree connectors seem to be press-fit. So McCleary is right, you need to solder the two sections together.

    They also seem to be pricier than I had expected... over $1 per unit on average?!?!

    They are pressed together. Look on YouTube and ibcrazy and a few other people show how to solder them together. I do it to all my connectors before putting them in service

    When possible, I snip off the original SMA connector and install a right-angle one. The 90 degree adapters are great in a pinch but add a bit more weight and possibility of falling apart.. And yes, they aren't cheap

    And in a hard enough crash, they still break... ask me how I know The solder makes them far more durable, though. I solder all of mine before putting them in service, too.


    you can buy non-press-fit units. They're $11 each!

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.
