Find out everything there is to know about RG58 cables so you can be well informed and make the best decisions regarding your RG-58 networking installations.
This is a unique coaxial cable hugely used on RF and low-power signal connections. Essentially, the cable usually has a general impedance of 50 to 52 Ohm with an outer diameter of about 5mm or 0.2 inches. The cable has a weight of about 37g per meter or 0.025 lb. per feet. RG-58 coaxial cables are designed to work with many of the two-way communication systems such as antennas, fire, police, amateur, CB radio to marine communication systems among others that need a 50 Ohm cable to function.
It is also highly used as a signal generic carrier particularly in labs and has also been used in frequencies that are moderately high. The signal attenuation for the RG-58 does depend on its frequency, such as 21.5 dB at 1 GHz per 100 feet, 70.5 dB at 50 MHz band per 100 meters and 3.3 dB per 100 feet. The modern car, truck, RV and Boat's cellular phone signal booster system is usually fitted with the RG-58 cables with a low signal loss per ten feet of the coaxial cable at a frequency of 800 MHz being 1 dB and 2.66 dB at a band of 1900 MHz.
RG-58 coaxial cables include the following.
The Wilson 951110 RG-58 two-foot coaxial cable is best for testing and tuning Yagi type of antennas and connecting Yagi to a specific external antenna adapter from Wilson. It has a signal attenuation of below 0.4 dB with N-Male and FME-Female connectors.
The Wilson 951134 N-Male/ N-Male RG-58 two-foot cable is a black colored unique cord best for extensions. The cable has a diameter of 3/16 of an inch in diameter and ensures there's a secure connection between surge protectors, taps, splitters and exterior or interior antennae and an amplifier. It can be used outside or inside a home as a low-loss coax cable. It incurs a low loss of signal of 0.2dB attenuation. Both ends are connected with N-Male connectors.
