Thread: Question Diamond X50

  1. #1

    Default Question Diamond X50

    I pulled out a Diamond X50NA from the closet to use it and I am missing the radials. I know they are 12" long. Does anyone know the thread size ? I have contacted Diamond for replacements but I want to get this up on the roof as soon as I can.

    Thank you

    Don't be in such a hurry, that is how they got lost in the first place!

    Spend this time to research coax, my guess is that you probably don't have good coax either...

    Look at LMR 400 or Belden 9913

    At least you are willing to put up a commercially made 2m antenna, but don't skimp on the coax..

    That's a huge leap. I lose things all the time, and have done the very same thing myself, and I have coils of coax laying around.

    I'm always asking my wife where I put things.

    Me: "Have you seen my red shirt? I can't find it"
    Wife: "have you measured your waist, you probably need some new trousers?"

    WOW! I have come to expect your negativity, but at times you exceed my expectations.

    I have an X50 but it's at the top of my tower. If memory serves the threads are 1/4"- 23 ( what ever the fine thread pitch is, not 1/4 - 20). I'd just take the antenna with you to the hardware store and match it.

    1/4-28 is the fine thread designation
