    Oh also Matt b you are confusing yourself with sma connectors male refers to the pin on the inside of the thread not the thread itself with rp-sma it still the pin but it's the opposite of the sma so the pin sticking out is a female while accepting the pin is a male it's not like a av cable. Alot of websites are dishonest and try to mislabe stuff and give you one pic not showing the pins the one thing I can say about this site I like is they try to be honest multiple pics and they warn you to look at the pics also I think i know why some connectors are impossible to find I saw one listed rp-sma double male it was $46.95 I think it might be a Patten issue or possibly a FCC issue.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but using this with the rp-sma male to sma female would lead to a rp-sma double male that everyone wants wish they where both gold plated though. If I'm right I think I deserve a comp. Just go ahead and send one of each to my address on file thanks.

  • Yep, thanks for pointing that out!
