[AMRadio] Millen High Voltage Connectors

If you over tighten the millen connectors they will crack the shell of the
chassis part pretty easily. You may not realize they have cracked. This can
be a leakage point.

Thanks to all of you for your insightful suggestionis.

In using coax connectors and coax cabling, I would recommend that one uses 
the red high voltage cable so as to clearly know the difference between an 
R.F. connection and a high voltage connection.

I am going to try another set of Millen connectors since the input seems to 
be that the ones that I used were just defective.  Most of the ARRL, etc. 
homebrew construction projects used those Millen H.V. connectors.  Perhaps, 
expanding the mounting hole on the chassis slightly might place less strain 
on the insulation properties.

Thank you again for taking the time to assist me.
