Now you can take advantage of the benefits of the exclusive FireRing
(see the connector) connector and have the
ease and convenience of being able to route your coax to the radio without the
need for holes or passages that could be as large as one-inch. This cable is
routed from the mount to the radio and the female mini-UHF connector will pass
through a hole that is only 7/16" (11mm)in diameter. After reaching the radio,
completion is as simple as screwing on the supplied mini-UHF/PL-259 adapter and
then screwing the PL to the radios antenna connection. No coax to process ... no
soldering joints to complete and no tools needed.
Inside the FireRing Coax Termination
For those of you who know Firestik, you know the they would never compromise
the quality of the coaxial cable for the conveniences found within this unique
assembly. While they are best known for their hi-performance antennas, the antennas
can not be expected to perform to their maximum potential if the coaxial cable
is unable to deliver what the radio has to offer. As with all of their cable
assemblies, they are as picky with what lies between the connectors as they are with
the connectors themselves. Here is what you get.
- Stranded center conductor to maximize flexibility and prevent untimely
- Shielding coverage that averages 95% to protect against RF leaks and
- Polyvinyl center insulation for ruggedness and longevity.
- Performance that exceeds mil-spec requirements for 50 ohm RG-58A/U coax.
Note: FireRing terminations require K-4R stud mounts that
include 1.25" long bolts. Mounts that have K-4 stud mounts can be adapted for
use with the FireRing termination by replacing the 1" bolt with a 1.25" bolt and
elimination of the ring terminal, one flat washer and one nylon washer.
