He mentioned a great old trick for keeping track of your connectors at group events. He paints a little dot of nail polish on each one. Now he always gets them back! 🙂

  • W3FIS, Paul:

    I got a number of the smaller clear tackle boxes. Good for RF connectors, audio, small batteries, etc. Use a label maker to label BOTH ends, and they stack nicely on the shelf in my closet. For field use, then just grab the RF one. I am convinced that you cannot ever have enough RF connectors/adapters..
