Folks,
I just discovered that Aircraft Spruce has much less expensive TNC connectors than I had previously purchased... and I need to buy one more so I want to know if I can use the cheap one. Are these equivalent, other than one being weather sealed? 
cheap: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/amphenol11-15370.php
expensive: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/edmo2255556.php
Thanks,

Check the specs on which cables each fits.

Lots of other options out there, though; for instance:

Art:
By design a TNC is weather sealed.
BUT!  TNC was NOT designed with a Crimp.
They are SOLDER type.
I HATE crimp type.  Too many problems and sharp edges.
And, why would you go to ACS for a standard off the shelf electronic item?

Barry,
I don't get to choose the connector; Trig did that when they built their GPS. I chose to follow their recommendation for RG-400 coax. Then I followed up on Charlie's suggestion. I read the specs more closely and I found that http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/amphenol11-15369.php is the right connector for RG-400. I like the $2.25 price so I'll buy it.
As for why buy from Aircraft Spruce, it comes down to convenience and cost, especially if I can bundle the two dollar connector with an order for other stuff and get free shipping. For a single two dollar part, I am not willing to spend much time finding the "best" price.

Not so sure that i would agree

The main difference between the B and the T is that the Bnc is a Bayonet type connection and the Tnc is a Threaded connection. Although both can probably be gotten in a weather proof variety this is not the major characteristic of either
Both are available in crimp on
