I have been using BNC's for years even on the QRO equipment. Have put as
much as 1500 watts output on them at SWR's of 2:1 maybe even more with no
problem. I generally do not use them outside except as a temporary connection,
even though some of my temporary's have been there for 5 or 6 years. A
suggestion--if you buy new ones get the SQUARE-CUT BNC's--they are a snap to
put on with no critical measurements required, no multiple small parts to
assemble and no crimp tool required. They are also cheaper and can be
reused. 72/73 Jim K4CGY qrp-l #72
