Connectors used in the Cellular, PCS and Nextel Industry

Note: This page is provided to assist in identifying various connectors used in the cellular industry. We do not sell these connectors separately. If you need an adapter to convert one type of connector to another, please go to our adapters page here. Unless otherwise noted, All connectors on this page are attached to RG58/LMR195 cable. The connectors shown are for identification purposes only. Since they require a crimp tool to install, we do not sell these connectors separately. Please see Connector-Adapter Page for other adapters.

TNC Male Connector
TNC Female Connector
TNC Male Connector Specs

TNC Connector Notes:

Note the TNC has a white collar in the center on both the male and female. Most often confused with the Mini-UHF. The TNC is slightly larger than the Mini-UHF (see below)

FME Female Connector
FME Male Connector

FME Male cable shown: RG174 (thin)

FME Connector Notes:

Probably the most misidentified connector! Note that the MALE has the center PIN. The Female has a receptacle. The center of the connector determines the gender.

Most of our adapters have an FME Male. Most of our mobile antennas have an FME Female. Nokia car kits typically use the FME connector, male on the car kit side, female on the antenna side.

Please note this is NOT an MC connector. MC connectors are not a cellular industry standard and are not supported by most equipment vendors.

FME Male and Female Connectors
Mini-UHF Female Connector
Mini-UHF Male Connector
Mini-UHF Male and Female Connectors

Mini-UHF Connector Notes:

Many times the male has the threaded collar that slides back and forth. The female has a few or many "teeth". Common on Motorola car kits. Slightly smaller than the TNC connector (see above). The Mini-UHF connector is used also on AS glass mount antenna coupling boxes. (below)
