Can anyone give me a use case for a Male to Female adapter of the same type? Example in link is an N Male to an N Female? Short of trying to protect the original female connection is there any other use for these thingsYou may be correct. I bought some to protect my SMA connectors on my
NanoVNA. Reportedly they're fragile and wear out after repeated use.
Replacing the adapter is a lot easier than replacing the one soldered
to the board.
Other than that, unless you're doing a sharp bend, I can't think ofI agree. The adapter you recently added may be bad if you are getting a
any, and some of those 90 degree adapters (239/259) are made so
cheaply the impedance is not constant through them. I understand
Amphenol is the way to go for those.
high (or higher) SWR afterwards. An easy way to see which one is bad
is to swap it out with a known good one or as Donald mentioned, one
from a high Q manufacturer like Amphenol.
