Gents,

Who's the best supplier of 26-50 GHz patch cords these days? I need
about half a dozen 3- and 6-inch semirigid coax links.

Cheers,

Don't know about 2.4's, but Lighthorse makes nice custom SMA and SMB
assemblies for us.

My sampling heads quit at 20 GHz, so I can use SMA's, and there's
heaps of SMA hardlines on ebay!

Is there a market for 7 mm APC connectors ? How about GR hermorphodite
(sp) connectors ?

GR connectors are strictly hobby stuff nowadays, owing to the large
amount of very cheap surplus RF gear that's available. 7mm connectors
are still used in network analyzers and so on, but only for precise
measurements--which means that you really need quality connectors from a
reputable vendor. The amount of time one can waste doing incorrect
network measurements costs a lot more than decent connectors and a
decent standard open/short set.

Phil,
Thanks about the GR & 7mm APC connectors. My company has a bunch of
this stuff sitting around unused. We are starting to sell it. I was
just wondering if connectors should be sold as scrap metal or
electronic connectors. I can't give details on the sale, I work for a
big company and we have an agreement with another company to sell the
items. My job is to document / pack the items and submit to
purchasing. You know how the legal beagles are.

Even the GRs will be worth more as connectors, I think.

The GR stuff isn't worth much, but a nice APC-SMA adapter still sells
for over $100 new.
