1. A connector for a coaxial cable, comprising:

  • a connector body;

    a fastening member for connecting said connector to an object;

    a post including a barbed portion, said post fitted at least partially inside said connector body for receiving a prepared end of said cable;

    a compression member fitted to said connector body radially outward of the barbed portion of the post; and

    an elastomeric band fitted inside a cavity formed at least in part by said compression member;

    wherein axial movement of said compression member onto said connector body causes said elastomeric band to deform and seal an outer layer of said cable to said connector to isolate an inside of said connector from environmental influences.
