I've got a few higher bandwidth instruments now and I've decided to take the plunge on buying "real" cables and connectors.  Since mating bad ones with good ones can cause some damage, and I don't want to have to examine every connector for a maker/part number to verify it can be use in a higher frequency connection without issue... so I'm selling my collection of cheapo connectors as a lot so that I don't have a mix of both floating around.

About 2.5lbs (in silly units) of cables and connectors, 32 connectors and 24 cables by my count, all used or open box in good shape, but all originally cheap connectors from ebay.  Probably low loss into the low GHz range, and usable to 6GHz or so, fine for a lot of work, but really not suitable for double digit GHz (I've measured 10dB+ per meter loss at 18GHz, where SMA's supposed to be rated to).  The real value of this lot in my mind is the variety, most of it is SMA on one end so almost everything can be interconnected, and it includes male and female (and sometimes RP) variants of most major connector types and some more minor ones.

Adding 5 BNC connectors (unpictured) because ones with proper datasheets from known manufacturers aren't actually that expensive.   Two tees, two right angle adapters, one straight female to female gender changer.

Asking $25 for the lot of them, not looking to break it up.  Can ship internationally, but may not be worth the price (shipping weight and USPS international prices).  Probably around $10 shipping to the US, can quote you specifically if you ask.

Sold!

And to anyone looking to buy stuff in the US from outside the US.... consider looking into a reshipping service.  To ship to Canada USPS was quoting me $40 as a base price for a 3 lb package, but to ship to a reshipper in New York, it was $8.

Will the reshipper charge the canada customer less than $32?

Not a reshipper, more like a po box located next to the border. When it get there, I need to collect my package. Should cost me around 4$.

I guess part of it is the last thing I sold on through this board ended up going similarly, I think to NJ or something and then off overseas - I think the rate was < $10/kg in that case for the reshipper.


In either case, it seems to be the value choice.
