90 Degree Coaxial Connector?

Hello all

I am in the process of installing a VHF radio on the boat. The antenna is installed and the cable has been run down the mast. While i have not yet looked or measured I suspect that I may have a problem with space relative to installing the radio, in particular enough space behind the radio to screw in the cable with out a tight bend.
Does any one know where to find a high quality 90 degree coaxial connector?
Is using one a good/bad idea?

Piece of cake....


they make 90 degree adapters and they are low loss for the most part. Get a name brand, silver plate or one that says AMP on it.

You may be able to get them locally at a truck stop .

best of luck

If you can't find it locally, here is where I would get it (not because others are not good, just because I am a HAM operator and I am familiar with this chain)

Ham Radio Outlet
