Roadpro RPM-359 90 Degree L Pl-259 To So-239 Connector
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cons: Pieces are pressure fitted together. While installing it pulled apart making it useless and not worth trying to rig or fix it back together. Not sure if it was due to cheap quality or just a lemon as other connectors from same manufacturer seemed to work just fine.
to connect the cable to the antenna in the location i wanted it.
if you need one, get one.
This right angle PL-259 adapter appears well made. The threads mate well with all of my patch cords. I can't speak to signal loss, but I suspect it is no more than a non-right angle device. I've purchased RoadPro patch cables, some of which are used with this adapter. They have all served me well over the years both above and below 100 watts.
The right angle adapter not only serves to make built-in coax connectors on transceivers and amplifiers more accessible, but also preclude unnecessary wear and tear on the built-in connectors. That is, stripping the threads on a right angle adapter is a lot less expensive and trouble than doing the same to built-in coax connectors. There is a slight signal loss with any connector, but it is negligible at amateur radio power levels.
