SMA cable extension

Post by exit_ramp » Tue Aug 21, 2018 6:09 pm

I want to locate my antenna on the roof for better reception. I bought a 10 meter (~30ft) SMA Male to Female extension cable. The problem I am having is that the male threaded side was just a small bit larger and would not thread into the RTL-SDR cable end that came with the kit.

I just need a source from which I can purchase a cable that will fit the RTL-SDR cable or where I can by the ends and I will make my own. The problem I am having is that I will not be sure the cable will fit until after it arrives.
