As far as I know, the only place "locally" that you are able to buy N
connectors would be at the next local Hamfest, which at this time of the
year would be at the JARS hamfest held in November in Benson, NC. I'm quite
familiar with RF N connectors because they are used by radio amateurs who
work in the VHF/UHF regions of the spectrum, esp. UHF.
It will cost approximately $5.00 to go to that Hamfest, if you are
interested in going, let me know and I'll give you further info closer to
the actual event. It is scheduled for Nov.17th at the American Legion
building in Benson, NC (which is just off I-40). There is another hamfest
before that one in NC which takes place in Maysville, NC which is located in
eastern NC on Oct.13th. Maysville is located a considerable distance from
the Triangle, however, and couldn't be considered to be local. But it is
rather easy to order N connectors by mail. Actually, Radio Shack should
stock them, although no one I know has ever purchased them from Radio Shack,
because almost all the parts there are of suspect quality (generally at
least in the amateur radio community). If you'd like some other mail order
sources, I'd be happy to look some 800 numbers up for you to use. Hope you
find what you need.--KQ4FP, Al Johnson.
