Hi

I have a Uniden 052XR handheld, and are trying to find a adapter to attach to the aerial socket so I can run it off a external UHF aerial in the car, can you get them.

Thanks

Shawie

G'day shawie
I assume the antenna lead has a PL259 plug on it at the moment....and you want to adapt it to a BNC type plug for the radio.
If you have a Dicky Smith store handy ---If I remember the part no is P2230--it has a SO239 one side and BNC the other. Should do the trick.

I have a so239 for the aerial connection, but on the uhf end it is a small screw in aerial and not a BNC plug.

Having trouble finding this connection

Radio Parts in Melbourne have them on the shelf. They will send them via mail to you. The item is under $10.00. They have an online catalogue.

I think you'll find that the Uniden 5w handheld has an SMA connector or similar. I've got an adaptor for mine, goes from (I think SMA) SMA to "N" connector. "N" Connectors are the normal style connector that your car mounted UHF would have. Then I just put a male to male adatpor on the "N" conector and it plugs straight in.

Try to keep connections to a minimum. It is possible to lose signal strength because of too many joins etc;

Cheers,

A couple of "n" connectors won't make a noticable difference to the Unidens someone crappy performance anyway.

I would have thought the crappier the performance the more important it is not to lose any :-)

It not so much power output from the Unidens that's the problem , I thinkit must be their modulation or micropohone setup, for some reason the that particular model doesn't seem to be all that great acustically. I have one, I use it for scanning and talking on Ch40 while on the road while the GME is my main rig. I used to hook it up to an atenna (that's why I made the adaptor) but I just don't worry about it anymore. They also last bugger all time on 5W TX and you can't TX while the charger is plugged in. At first I thought it was just my unit, but speaking to others they all seem to suffer the same problems...

And besided that to "n" connectors wouldn't make any different to any rig as long as they are crimped correctly and decent cable is used.
