RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Recommended RF cable RG type for WiMAX - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi ssabir

The question you raise is too general to give advice because there are many RG cables with low loss.

You need to do a loss budget for the system you plan to implement based on transmitter power, antenna gain, bandwidth, receiver sensitivity etc. From this, a maximum tolerable loss in the feeder cables can be estimated. Based then on the physical layout constraints of distance between electronic units and the radiating system, you can calculate the maximum tolerable loss per meter. From that you look up the data sheets to find the nearest match.

Hope that helps.
