Re: Coax for dish feed (suggestions please).

I saw that, it's scary expensive but it is an excellent spec cable.

I'd question the need for ultra low loss, phase stable lab grade cable specced to 26.5GHz for 9 and 13cm?

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] Coax for dish feed (suggestions please).


I am putting together two dishes for 13 & 9cm. 

My plan is a multiband Vivaldi feed with an SMA connector to an SMA on a transverter mounted on the rear of the dish, currently 3w max power, but may go up to 10w later.

So I need two  roughly 1 to 2m lengths of the  lowest loss coax I can afford. Succoflex 100 has been suggested. 

Are there any better options and suggestions of a source?

Thanks Andy GD1MIP
