You mean like 090-3636 ( H090-3636 ) on that page ?

What's the secret ? I've tried crimp F connectors but found them
really hard to do. I *think* I have the right size connector for the
cable (at least that's what I was specifically told to use when I
asked). It's been a while now, but IIRC the dimensions suggested that
I shouldn't strip back the sheath but crimp the ring over the sheath.
That means forcing the spigot on the connector up between the screen
and the outer sheath which just wanted to push the screening back
into a lump.
