Surely wiring some 50 ohm BNCs to a bit of cable is not that much of a
problem :-). I prefer the solder type. Crimp ones are fine, and the
connections are reliable _if you use the right crimp tool and die_. If
you don't have the right tool, you'll have more success with the solder
type, which can be fitted with a normal soldering iron.

It violates some bit of the spec from what I rememebr, but I've never had
any problems putting N-to-BNC acapters on 10 base 5 transceives with N
connectors on them. Or replacing the beesting with a BNC socket and
adding a T piece for that type of 10base5 transceiver.
