I think increasing, rather than smoothing!

Hi W

Be careful standard Y cables wont fit into the Rosetta Case. This is because the parallel connection is done at the SMA end and the ones that we have seen on t'internet are too big and bulky.

We are having some made to our specification to avoid this.

If you are lucky and get one that is not big and bulky and fits like Cinderella's slipper let us know.
Any update on this? Thanks.

These are the ones I ordered https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SMA-TS9-Adapter-SMA-Female-to-Y-type-2-X-TS9-Male-Connector-Splitter-Combiner-Cable/1000001913663.html

Make sure you select the RG316 option for the SMA to MCX
Great, thanks. But, which length? I guess 15cm is OK, that's what I had already in the single.
Any progress on the "Y" connector that was in the pipeline?

I have 3 spare Pi 2's / wifi / oldSDR and a couple of aerials I can donate to the OGN-R program if that's helpful. Send to the usual Rosetta DIY upgrade address?

Sorry for the late reply, yes the 15cm option is what I ordered.

:-) thanks
I ordered the 20cm, there doesn't seem to be an SMA / MCX rg316 15cm any more on that page

Looking at parts for the 'Y' splitter connector and the 2 low power SDR's? Someone asked where I got mine.

These are current:
Y connector / SMA Female to Y Type 2X MCX male RA Splitter Jumper pigtail RG316 cable 6in(15cm)

and the low power radio:

there may be cheaper low power SDRs out there, but it's not clear to me whether the SDR being offered on other sites are the low power versions.
