Good Morning All:
Much to my happy surprise, 800 feet of Commscope F660BV 75 ohm coax
arrived on my door step yesterday. I have searched all of the
Commscope data I can find on the internet, and find nothing about the
correct connector(Type F) to use on it. Can someone please help me
to understand this? I know there are various types of coax with
various levels of braid. Do all connectors fit all levels of
braid? If not, what fits what?
I would prefer to use Type F connectors due to the cost saving. If
necessary I would use BNC.
Here are the cable specs.
18 AWG copper clad steel
Nominal Diameter: 0.040" (1.02mm)
Gas expanded polyethylyne
Nominal diameter over dielectric: 0.180" (4.57mm)
1st shield: Aluminum polypropylene
Aluminum laminated tape with overlap bonded to the dielectric
Nominal diameterover tape: 0.187" (4.75 mm)
2nd Shield: 34 AWG Aluminum braid wire
Nominal diameter over jacket: 0.272" (6.91mm)
Nominal jacket thickness: 0.030" (0.76 mm)
Impedance: 75.0 +/- 3.0 Ohms
Velocity of propagation 85% nominal
All information I find indicates that this coax is flooded, and
suitable for outdoor use.
