So239 to 3/8 adapter for magmount base ?

Post by original45 » 30 Aug 2017, 13:51

As title is their such a adapter so I can use my sirio magmount so239for a 3/8 antenna .
I remember seeing a sirio brand 3/8 base converter to so239 opposite but not to use a 3/8 whip .
Prefer one that gives a stable fit and won't just rely on it screwing into so239 without outer support to base
Failing this can you get the base connectors in 3/8 fitting with the colar lock nut that holds fitting into base as these magmount are I've got.

Couple of questions further please.
Got the sirio one on order so should arrive Monday Tuesday.

Using this will it effect swr or not.

Secondly I saw prior so239 3/8 converters that look like a pl with a 3/8 head other end which does the same I suspect but it looks less stable as theirs no wide base just the threaded collar
Has anyone used one of these on a magmount base for a antenna .
Does it have a limitation on how long a antenna can be used on it .
And does it again effect swr once used.

Thank you again

I've only used the sirio adapter , I suppose it all boils down to what antenna you're putting on it . I've not noticed any difference re the SWR but then again others may have noticed a difference .Try it and see is your best option mate .
