I can purchase screw on BNC connectors at Fry's for under $2 each.
(It screws onto the end of the RG58 cable, rather than crimping or
soldering on) This would make connection to a conventional strut (for
prototyping) very simple.
For production, BNC connectors are a common module capable of
being integrated into many packages. Nothing wrong with putting it
onto the end of a "stick." It'd be simple enough to use for this
No real complications involved...having to design molds and mass
produce custom, internally threaded pieces isn't a "snap" either. I'm
just suggesting an off the shelf part that doesn't introduce problems,
as does a threaded connector.
My main concern would be lateral loading of the BNC connector, and
how it would hold up.
