I won a freelander/rangie/probably disco GPS antenna on eblag a while ago, but i can't figure out what the UHF plug connection is properly called (so i can make up a lead without having to chop the original plug off)

looks like this:

anyone got any ideas? it's approx 6mm diameter,the inner part of the plug,which is male, therefore the "female" plug that i'm after will be 4mm.

length of the knurled bit, 10mm

cable diameter, about 3.5mm

cheers all!

What exactly are you planning to do with this? You can buy a new high quality antenna with the correct plug for $20. Also most antennas are seld powered and it may be important to make sure it won't fry your GPS.

I only paid about £5 for it! i want to run (or try) it on my garmin GS3+, i'll attach ir permantly to my 110 y'see.

Jim,

if you cant out what plug it is, if you pop it in the post, ill replace the plug & make you up a patch lead with the required plug on each end.

HTH

thanks for that, i'll bear that in mind! :D:D

Jim,

Difficult to tell from the picture ................ but,

If its a snap on plug then it will be an SMB or a type G (thats a snap on version of the type F) and is quite common with OEM devices.

you should be able to work it out from here .................http://www.amphenolrf.com/products/typeg.asp
