Hi Satelliters,

Setting up a shack at the new QTH.

Does anyone have measured loss figures for "N" type connectors in a cable
run on 145 MHz and 437.

I have seen 0.5dB per connector quoted but have no idea if this accurate,
theoretical, or measured.

Hi John, G7HIA

A good quality N connector has an insertion loss of 0.15 dB at 10 GHz .Look
here !
