Re: Elk Antenna vs Arrow Antenna



Hi Nigel,

PL-259 is NOT a constant impedance connector while N connectors
or C, BNC, TNC, SMA are constance impedance and this make a great
difference matching devices to 50 ohm when the frequency becames high
and the lenght of a PL-259 is a considerable part of a wavelenght.

Figure out what happens using a PL-259 at 10 GHz i.e. at a wavelenght
of 3 cm

Since N/m (male connector) or N/f (female connectors ) are constant
impedance provided they are properly assembled to the coax cable they
can be used up to 12 GHz

For additional informations read the following page.
