Re: Coax Recommendations

Then I respectfully suggest it might be time to review your cable end prep, or time for a new connector installation tool. Or both. Yes, you'll get a little flooding on your hands as you hand-fit the compression connector to the freshly cut cable end. But when a correctly prepared cable end has a compression connector "snapped" on properly, that's the end of it. That's the whole concept behind the compression design.

And heat from the sun should never cause bleed from exterior compression either, as they're supposed to be wrapped after installation with self-fusing tape or heat shrink.
