I've just tried to crimp 'standard' 5mm TNC and BNC connectors onto a piece of Aircell 5. It didn't fit :-( The outer is far too big for the outer crimp to slide on and the inner is too big to fit in the pin. Bit of a bummer as my plane's now in bits until I fix it.
While I can just get a BNC connector labelled to be of the right size now I realise, where do I start with trying to find a suitable TNC connector? (And actually ideally, I'd rather get a right-angle BNC).
Hmmm. Turns out I'd been sent Aircell 7 instead of Aircell 5. No wponder my 'standard' 5mm connectors wouldn't fit. Nevertheless, question still stands as to what are the important dimensions of coaxial cable and connectors as they're not at all clear.
