FM02 SMA connector broken?
So i got my FM02 yesterday from Chris (thanks Chris!) and i did send him and e-mail but i know he is busy so i figured I'd post here for feedback. Anyhow...I hooked it up to my Dipole Antenna that i made and I was tightening the connector by hand (no tools) and I noticed it wasn't stopping. I looked at it and the male end was spinning inside the "block" portion that is connected to the board. I tugged on it slightly and it (the male threaded part) came out. I pushed it back in and everything works but I have a feeling it isn't supposed to come apart like that. Also looking at the end of the barrel/male threaded part and inside the "block" that is soldered to the board it doesn't look like it broke off either.
I don't think this supposed to happen but just wanted to make sure. Plus I would assume and easy fix would be a few solder points where the barell and the block meet if this is something I did by over tightening.
