BuyDig is now down to $279 (free shipping and no tax as well). Might be worth taking a chance at that price with PayPal and your credit card as backing.

RG59 is the old TV coax. RG6 is the new TV coax used to connect to TVs and cable boxes. I know the thin coax you are talking about but have no idea what that is or if a non professional can even make...

This is something that is pretty hard to screw up since the actual connection is in the cable/coax and not the connector. The connector itself is just a screw on fitting. I buy my cable connectors of...

While the unit itself is inexpensive it is the shipping that is a killer. If you decide to buy it I would buy it from someplace else with more reasonable shipping.

Thank you for the discussion but I try to avoid that attitude. We probably should end this now before we get angry with each other.

We are going to have to agree to disagree. I think people/(A/V) enthusiasts on this site tend to get a skewed view of the general population.
