Want to buy:
I spent the day searching locally, need the cord that connects to the fm02 board, made the dipole antenna, now I need to connect and transmit. Ordered from ebay, but will be here late January..

I accidentally sent two to someone that had a failed transmitter.
But, I can't remember who it was and I deleted the PMs.
So, you know who you are !
Can you help this fellow out??

Got to EBay and search for; RP-SMA FEMALE ADAPTER. or RP-SMA FEMALE ADAPTER TO BNC.
If you limit it to U S Only (doesn't work too good), you may find one here in the U. S.
Be sure to check the pictures and be sure it will connect to your FM02.

This one looks to have the rpsma that I need, If I cut off the N connector and clamp the cable to the diapole, I should be in business right?
They are just 70 miles away.

I think you have the wrong one. It has to RP-SMA FEMALE, not male. You might contact them and see if they have the correct one.
The FM02 that I have has the male pin for the center conductor in the connector. This means it has to be a female connector.
Also, you should solder, not clamp, the coax to the dipole. If possible, you should use connectors as trying to solder coax is usually not too successful.

The FM02 connector has changed over time. Some were reverse polarity, some were not. So, you had best match it up visually and be sure the picture on ebay is exactly what you are buying and not a representation.

Hi ,the the coax antenna connector of FM02 is just RP SMA female as I search.
In the following pic,you can the jumper RP SMA male to RP SMA female cable (http://www.rfsupplier.com/male-female-pigtail-cable-rg316-length-p-1428.html):
the left end of the pigtail is RP SMA male connector and the right end of the pigtail is RP SMA female
