    I needed a patch cable to bring a cable through a small gap in my windows. This did the job superbly. It is well made and good quality

    I used to make my own, but I now buy these and other patch leads from SOTABeams for the sheer quality of the item. They are ideal for both the Shack and Portable operating.

    Great quality at a sensible price. Nicely soldered ends with heat shrink strain relief. Lightweight & flexible. My first order with Sotabeams and the quality is a great advert for them so I'll be back!

    Excellent HF cable for my ATU

    Posted by Nick on 25th Jul 2016

    Very well made BNC to PL259 cable. Quality connectors and excellent soldering with heat shrink over both connector inputs on the RG174 cable. Fast delivery and a good price, thanks.

    Excellent products and an excellent service as usual

    The mission was to source a couple of lightweight patch leads to go between an antenna multi-coupler with BNC sockets and two receivers, one with a PL259 antenna socket and the other with a BNC one. I found exactly what I wanted on the SOTABEAMS site. Mission accomplished. Brilliantissimo !

    First class

    Posted by David Dabinett on 29th Dec 2015

    Useful kit, nicely put together. I placed an order for a 80cm BNC-BNC lead. It arrived promptly with other items in the order. But one of the BNC plugs had its Centre pin recessed. I emailed SOTABEAMS and got a prompt reply with a replacement by return of post. Well done SOTABEAMS, one happy customer. First class service by a First class company. Recommended for kit and service.

    Difficult soldering RG 174 at my age. They are made with extra attention to weather/wear protection on the connectors. Length is reasonable.
