The unit I'm getting should come with a "BNC to N-Type connector" but I
thought n-type was maybe 2cm diameter? The connector on the phone (C139)
is tiny, I have just uncovered it...

If I understand correctly, I need a special connector for the phone and
then maybe another one? eg. N to SMA depending on what the special
connector provides...

Looking on the list archive someone suggested:,%20CG-B1%20-%203.0mm,%200-6GHz,%2090%B0%20r/a

But no reports as to whether it worked or not.

Probably I should just get a cheap car-antenna for the phone and rip the
connector out for my own cable...
