Danny,
Glad you like them.
Maybe I need to start a ‘no barrel connectors’ group ;-)

Hi David.

Thanks for the information. I ordered some compression PL259s and SO239s 
yesterday direct from Barenco, and they arrived this morning, at a fraction of 
the cost I last paid from a retail Ham supplier. They look quite chunky with 
protective caps on the end, which I would not expect from a cheap manufacturer. 
 I can at last get rid of the SO239 barrels that have given me intermittent 
problems on my long co-ax cables.

Regards,

Danny, G3XVR

I bought a batch of Barenco 259s amongst others and I am mightily impressed,
very chunky, very smooth and not expensive.
