Re: Source for F to N/SO239 Adapters



Run the RG-6 it's cheap and the difference is .7 to .8 dB of loss per 100
feet.  After going through the gain of the downconverter (and possibly a
pre-amp before the downconverter) this trivial loss should not affect your
overall system performance in the least.
