Does anyone know of a supplier of decent quality PL259 plugs?

The ones I have had delivered today are going back. Not only are the solder holes far too big, over 50% of the diameter of the body, but the body of the plug is some cheap alloy, and cannot be soldered. They are fine for the C.B. bodge of screwing the outer braid back against the insulation, but not a proper connection.

Let me know who sells the real thing, and I’ll get my and in my pocket.

Stuart, GD0OUD.

The RSGB invite you to complete a survey

Dear Colleagues


Five years ago, the RSGB undertook a comprehensive online survey of amateur radio in the UK. The data was used in the development of a vision and strategy for the Society.


A new survey was launched in September 2015 and all UK radio amateurs are invited to complete the online questionnaire. The questions are largely the same as before, so we can see what has changed since 2010. The number of questions varies depending on your circumstances, and the survey should take between 10 and 30 minutes to complete.


The survey can be found at all amateurs are invited to complete it. I would be most grateful if you could publicise this within your organisation.


The survey will remain live until the end of the year and the results will be published in the Spring of 2016


Many thanks


Graham Coomber, G0NBI
