Probably so. I currently have a similar problem with what I would have
expected to be a common connector...I've got a pile of 0.250" 16-14
"flag-style" fast-on (quick connect) type crimp terminals, and I still
can't find a crimper or crimp die for them that isn't in the $800 (AMP's
tool) price range. Anyone know of an inexpensive solution for these? I was
surprised to find that Paladin or Ideal didn't make a die set for these
types of terminals.

Or just about any other quality RF connector...
