Soldering a coax cable to RFM69

What do you think about this?
Wanted to increase the GW range so trying to use a bigger 433MHz antenna.
Would this be the correct way to make it?
Comment/suggestions will be welcomed
@joaoabs yes that looks fine.
Keep the non-shielded part of the cable as short as possible, but you’ve already done a great job so I think it would be hard to make it shorter.
Personally I would probably have chosen to solder a pigtail (with sma contact) to the rfm module, to make it possible to switch to a different antenna/coax cable without soldering. But each connector introduces loss, so soldering might be the best choice.
