SMA not SMA-RP?

SMA are more professional and higher grade. That's why we moved to them!

I'm hard pressed to believe SMA is higher grade then SMA-RP. Now if you were talking changing families to MCX, MMCX, TNC, N, UHF, etc I might buy it depending on the freq.

But with that said I had picked up SMA to SMA-RP connectors to do tests on the spectrum analyzer for some HAM radio and GPS antenna designs. So I should be set with the arsenal of antennas I already own.

We got rid of the MMCX pigtail and went with SMA soldered right onto the board. There were reports of some flaky connectors with the MK4 that this solves. A conversation with Mike Ossmann regarding signals and the Hack RF (which also went with SMA over RP-SMA) led to this decision. If you have existing RP-SMA gear it should be adaptable no problem.
