I am curious how much CW power an N connector or SO-239 connector will handle on such a low frequency like 160m band. I know on VHF they will probably handle about 800W before getting too warm.
I have made a high powered transmitter for this band, and I've always used cables with either N or SO-239 in the past. I know something like DIN is recommended for over 1kW, but at these frequencies, I would think the others could handle it. I know the voltage handling of the N connector is 1500 volts peak which is plenty for several kilowatts, but will it get too warm?
I am partial to the SO-239 because the center conductor is so much larger.
Does anyone have personal experience using either of these connectors over 1kW? BTW my coax is fine as it's LMR400.
