Antenna to UHF adapter?

Unread post by HiLuxy » March 7th, 2015, 2:18 pm

Hi guys, I'm having trouble with my communications. I narrowed down the problem to the aerial, and proceeded to buy one off the internet. The old faithful internet told me that this RFI aerial would be compatible with my Uniden UHF box, and I believed it. Unfortunately this is not the case, and I'm in need of an adapter to join the plug of the antenna to the box.

I can't find one anywhere for the life of me, but I'm convinced they exist somewhere. Similar to the one I've attached, but for RFI -> Uniden

Thanks to anyone who can help me shed light on this conundrum, it's really appreciated!

Ignore this I'm an idiot, the adapter was hiding at the bottom of the packet.

Good news...... on finding it. (not talking about the idiot part) :D

RFI are A1 company so good to hear it's all in the box. Adapter is SMA female to PL 259 (which is male) for anyone who might need to describe it when ordering one. Sometimes people need adapters like that for handhelds. Might be SMA to SO239 if connecting a hand held to a mobile antenna that has a PL 259 on it (regular mobile cb antenna connection). Check the SMA for male or female orientation.
