 ```Hi Manius, The insertion loss of a good N connector is equal to the square root of F (in GHz) times a constant (K). The constant for a single N connector is 0.5. Therefore, at 23 CM (1.3 GHz) the loss is approximately .057 dB so you can add up the losses based on your situation. 73, Joe, W1JR At 01:36 AM 8/24/2008, Marinus Willemstijn wrote: >Sorry if this question do not belong her but I want to know how do you >determine connector losses on 23cm?
