So, I thought to myself: You already have regular TV cable connectors in the new Caravan, so, why not use whatâ€™s there instead of punching new holes through the side of your new Caravan? Hmmm. Would that work? Get a couple of â€œdo it yourselfâ€ cable connector thingies and make your own pl-259 to cable TV connector patch/jumper/pigtail cords? Hmmmâ€¦
So I spent the big bucks ($8 total) at Home Depot and got a couple packages of RG-59 push-on connectors. (I always get more than I need because I tend to mess things up the first couple of times I try something â€œnew.â€) Those are assembled. Will take my radio out and see if it works tomorrow. Only have to hope the cable in the Caravan is at least R-8(?) and it should work okay. Not excellent; but okay. Good thing I have enough coax on my antenna to reach without having to move it! If this works Iâ€™ll make them more permanent. If not, Iâ€™m out $8 and I still have some left over for other â€œprojects.â€
My Lovely Young Bride of almost 30 years took me to dinner at Red Robinâ€™s in Silverdale. (Just down the street from Home Depot.) She had her usual mushroom burger and I had something that was supposed to be a BBQ Burger. Way too much of those fried onions on it; but otherwise good. Made our usual stop at Safeway and we be home.
Hooked that Roku2 I have up to my TV in my room. Still not impressed with it.
And thatâ€™s pretty much it. â€œFor A Few Dollars Moreâ€ is running in the background while I mess with that SDR thing I got. Really needs a better antenna! Did hear some 2-meter stuff though.
