Pros:
Great adapter for the price. Can use these to convert a SMA male to a female on the radio or antenna. Nice to use to couple a few cables together while experimenting. For the price of less that 50 cents US these are a terrific bargain. You can use a washer or two between the antenna and the radio to take up the space between them. A small piece of rubber tubing will work trimmed to the proper length 1/8th inch -1/4 inch typically between the radio and antenna to use to prevent moisture from infiltrating the antenna or radio. Get then in bulk and save even more. Give them to your ham radio friends or resale at hamfests.
Cons:
No cons at this price. They work well at 440. My guess is they work well into the multi-GHZ range.
Other:
You can never have enough adapters.
Bottomline:
A no-brainer for the price of these!!
