I want to replace the Vhf cable on my S2 8m as it is starting to get brittle and has small cracks in a few places. It is about 1/4" in size and has performed well. Space is limited so I would like to stay w/ the 1/4 size. I believe LMR-240 cable can be used (about 50 ft length) with a nominal loss. What connectors will fit that size cable?

It is not the cable, you need to have the connectors fit the radio and antenna connections.

LMR-240 is the same size as RG-8X. So any connector sized for that and compatible with your current setup should work.

Any place which sells good quality coax will also stock the reducer you need to fit the cable to a standard PL259 connector
