Hi Mike. I think most of us center it around 7040.

The rear panel connectors are board mounted, and the antenna connector is
a BNC. I suppose you could hardwire an SO-239 and drill a bigger hole,
but that wouldn't be worth it (IMHO).

It would be nice, though, if the various manufacturers informally agreed
on connectors & jacks.....I'd like to get rid of this rat's nest of
cables for the various rigs with different connector schemes and sizes.
