Pi DVB hat - antenna adapter

Wed Dec 26, 2018 10:15 pm

Quick Question – Does anyone know what the socket specification the micro socket for the antenna is on the board? I do not want to use the adapter plug supplied, I want to use a short adapter cable to not put load onto the board edge. I could not find this anywhere. Also just out of curiosity, where is it made?
There are no “Made in XXX” words anywhere I can find. Thanks

It's called an "MCX" (Micro Coaxial) socket. It might be worth reading from here onwards:

In fact, that whole thread is very useful.
