Ok, the RCA-to-N is for another configuration and there are three spares included. But what a mass of cable to hook up a basic station!
I did order all the cables from the same source, as I wanted a fully matched set appearance and the convenience.
That odd RCA-N RF cable and the RCA-RCA RF cables would have been inconvenient to source any other way.
With modern rigs we either never have the connections (as more of the radio is in the single box) or have multi-wire connections that interconnect in a snap.
In the next installment we’ll show things hooked up (and hopefully keeping “the smoke in” and working!)
