Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Thats a bit of an odd mashup. Particular application in mind? (connectors can be dependant on signal range if you are talking HF/microwave etc) If you don't need it in a hurry lot of adaptors like this cheap from DX and ebay chinese sellers. Or gowifi have some well constructed low loss pigtails http://www.gowifi.co.nz/coax-ethernet-cables/premade-cables.html

Thanks, I was having a look at ebay suppliers but figured I'd ask if someone had one (or more) lying around unused. I've just ordered one of the realtec DVB-T tuner dongles to play with SRD things, so I should only need up to 2200 MHz throughput as that is the range of the chipset.

Aha! I did wonder :) For ADSB decoding (right up my alley, been serving flightradar24 for about 2yrs) or something else? If ADSB, its Microwave and you are better to get N-Type connectors and some chunky RG8 at the least or LMR400 (auckland retailer) if you can find the holes to run it through. RG58 can have a loss of 6-8dB whereas LMR400 at the expense of thickness can be <3dB

Oh.. and if its for low end HF (2-4kHz), the chipsets need an extra box inbetween. As they get a bit of noise pickup and need expansion

Just wanted to play around in general. Seen a couple of talks online recently using these which look quite impressive. If I could get the 1090 MHz stuff working for the plane tracking, it would be great (house looks over the airport so no shortage of potenial aircraft to track) to play around with.
