At my new home the GPS antenna location has turned in to a challenge. May have to splice RG 6U. Has any one done measurements on couplings and the loss associated with them. Right now I am considering a female, female coupling. Is there a better alternative?
Thanks Bert Kehren Palm City Fl.
I have used RG-6 with F connectors and barrel splices for many years with very good results.
I do use the good waterproof connectors which I was able to find at Lowes. They also have the tool to compress the fittings. Much more convenient that N connectors for the RG-6.
