One of the most confusing aspects of hooking up an antenna to a cellular booster or a hotspot is figuring out just how to fit Tab A into Slot B, when the cables just don't seem to fit together.
And speaking of the cables - they seem to come in a wide range of sizes and flavors too. Just what are the differences?
Adapters are available to bridge the gaps, but they aren't always easy to find - particularly if you don't even know the proper names for Tab A and Slot B.
Or is it SMA, FME, and TS-9?
Is the end male or female? Is the polarity reversed? What does that even mean?!?
