RF noob question: SMA port savers: from where do you get them ?

(1/2) > >>

rteodor:
Got tinySA/LiteVNA for fun but I connect and disconnect them more times than I expected.

I checked the usual places from where I get stuff (Mouser/Eleshop/Reichelt/even Amazon) but either I am too dumb or they are not there.

So, where do you find this SMA port savers ?
(with bonus thanks for places that might have other GHz RF'ies like mixers and filters :))

Looking at the price I remember how I did not find them on Mouser. Sometimes the subconscious decides...

Haven't tried them, but I could only find 90 degree Angle on Amazon for Chinesium parts :

For straight through Chinesium, would need to use Aliexpress or similar I think.

Bit of a crapshoot how it will perform though in the couple GHz range.

Also risk damaging connectors on other devices, as their interpretation of the tolerance specs on connectors tends to be quite loose...
