Anyone know a good place to find an "F" to bnc (female) connector? I believe it's called an "F" connector.....It looks just like the connector on the cable that you use to connect your cable to your TV. Someone please correct me if "F" isn't the right name for it. I use this connector for the input on my reciever and need to buy a couple spares. Thanks.

Yea, Sure. Cruise on over to Skycraft on Aloma..... Oh wait, nevermind. The airfare alone wouldn't make it worth it.

Bi-Tronics if you're looking to buy online. They have a great catalog of connectors and cables, and other cool geeky stuff.

Take Care,

Check your local home elextronics store.. anwehre where you can buy a TV or VCR.. most of them have a littel setion of misc connectors.

And failing that, Hit up Radio Rhack, they should definatly have the part.
Here's the gold plated version from them: http://www.radioshac...rentPage=family

Chip,
I'm actually headed back to Orlando for Christmas, so Skycraft may be in my future. I didn't even think of that. I remember Skycraft being on Lee Rd. Did they move or is my memory failing me?
Hmm, Radio Shack....I didn't think they'd have that connector. Ya learn something new everyday.
Thanks for the tips fellas.

Your only 1 exit off. Not bad for being gone for so long. And actually, it's on Fairbanks..... My memory had failed me for a bit there. Give me a jingle if you're in town. We'll have a little Orlando Guild meeting.

Best to convert your receiver to BNC. Most of the tuners we sell are converted upon request. Makes life a lot simpler.

Brad--

Just a guess, but do you use a Sony 1041 as your tuner? If so then replacing the connector is ridiculously easy. I opened mine up to discover that it was actually a pass-thru panel mount with a RCA on one side and an F-connector on the other. So for a couple of bucks I got an RCA to BNC panel mount from Markertek and used a Dremel to widen the panel housing just a touch. Took all of 5 minutes.

Mitch,
I certainly do. I didn't realize it was that easy. I'll convert it asap. Thanks for the tip Mitch.

It was worth the shot to guess. I was so happy to discover how easy it was that I figured I should share the wealth.
