18" pigtails don't cut with large dishes. Further, the loss on crap coax at 5.8Ghz is quite high even with short lengths. From a shear cost perspective there is little reason to use crap coax for short pigtails. Without cost being a major factor all the benefits of using quality coax start piling up.

There are other connectors more robust than RP-SMA; it doesn't have to be N. RP-SMA is just too small to use with decent coax.
