Yes I've been mulling over how to do that, must make a jig of some sort. I have some brass tubing that just a hair larger than the outer diameter of the cable and will try soldering to that [lot of heat] then solder that to the shield [gentle heat]. I plan to solder only the top and have the tube go down over the outer insulation. Is this good or no?
A second question regarding that is if this brass tube is extended down over the outer insulation about 20mm [28mm maybe better?] similar to the balun on a linear dipole will it adversely affect the antenna? The idea is to use it as tension relief.
Last resort is to use a ufl/ipx to sma adapter cable Frsky others but I've not found one yet.
