Hi Graham, G3VZV

Recommended types are 50 ohm semirigid hand formable coax cables with
outside diamters of 0.86 mm , 1.2 mm and 2.2 mm with SMB or SMC
connectors and  3.6 mm with SMA connectors.

See the catalogue http://www.rfmicrowave.it/catalogue.php?lang=eng


Various characteristic impedances are available, 12.5-25-35-50-70-75 Ohm
