Re: Feed Line Loss @ Freq vs. Price

UHF Series connectors used on 2M was the basis of my statement (0.25 each).
I have gotten better results than that.  That is just the estimate I used 
calculating estimated line loss ahead of actual construction of the line.

Hi John, K8OCL

0.5 dB loss per connector at what frequency ?

If you screw up togheter 6 Male/Female connectors you get
a 3 dB attenuator and with 100 watt input 50 watt are dissipated
just 50/6= 8.33 watt per connector..........too hot !
