Question Belden Silver plated RG6

This particular coax is designed for 4k applications.

I would imagine it to be for indoor use only due do to the higher oxidation rate of silver.
However.
Silver has an approximately 7% higher conductivity than copper.

I was wondering if anybody has done any experiments with it?
If so. Were there any noticeable differences in gain and loss?


Belden

Perhaps if you learned how to post in proper English I might be able understand what you are saying.

Yes I know the spec sheet is at the website.
I looked at it.

This coax is best used for transmitting UHD signals from the composite signal modulator out to the transmitter, thus the need for low loss, and at $1.70 a foot it's not worth using it for anything else.

Good spec's but the only connectors I can find for it are the ones supplied from Beldin, and they are BNC crimp on, standard crimp connectors for regular RG-6 are too big on the inside diameter, standard RG-6 = .332 in OD, this new stuff = .23 in OD, there would be a sealing problem.

And the only real advantage would be the low loss for DC voltage out to an antenna or LNB on a very long run lets say over 150 feet or more, but in these types of installs I would use RG-11, or fiber.

Aww be nice Sev, not everyone in the world knows how to use proper English to post on these sites, heck most of the people around where I live only talk and write in Red Neck.

thank you Terry13.you know some people just don't understand.
And they think they are so smart they are stupid!! That is why I used RG.11,but
I would like too use Rg8u,with pl259/for my hi&low,VHF.9 strains of 18gage stranded SOLiD
Copper for center conductor. what do you think. it would be that bad too change
It over too pl259 u con. Becuse I have 250ft of the 8u,kicking around becuse I bought 500ft,of it for my kick ass cb base!! North Carolina last night out of mass100+on the metter.antenna"S higth 35ft. lol ssb.&usb.for get the belDUN!!!

I used RG-214 for my UHF/VHF, expensive but it's a long run so I used good stuff.

You could also use LMR-400, it's just as good as the RG-213, but if you have the RG-213 then use it.

RG213, RG214 and LMR400 are 50 ohm cables which would generally preclude them from general use in ordinary distribution of cable and TV systems.

Looking at the spec sheets and comparing, for example, Belden's 1694A and the 4694A data, the DCR per unit length is the same making that a moot point. What is different is slightly lower insertion loss, slightly lower capacitance per unit length, and increased velocity factory. The OD is the same at .27" so standard F-connectors would probably fit. However, since this stuff isn't intended for general RF signal distribution, Terry's initial comments are spot on.

In TV broadcasting we used a ton of 50 ohm cable, all our transmission systems were 50 ohm.

And the RG-214 was used for my ham antennas.

Yep, 50 ohm stuff is better suited for applications that include transmission of signals due to higher voltage and power levels. 75 ohm is usually used for distribution of received low-level signals due to its better attenuation characteristics.

Thank you guys for the CABLE up date know maybe sev will leave BelDen out.
Not for tv use.and I just got my old 1960!!Radio Shack!!!brand new box never
Opend!!!VU-190xR VHF/uhf/FM!!!read some good reviews about this antenna
Out of New York city's I could not pass up the opportunity I pad $40dollars 4 it.
Lol but the shipping costs more than the ANTENNA.

what is UHD transmission and where did it come forum
Sounds like ham pack it sound and video transmission?
73,and THINK about going HAM radio station. and
Keep in touch with everyone in good condition
And bad!!!

Like ham radio station and pack it. sound&video?
If so I gess IT'S time. for me too brush up on my
Ham,pack IT Radio video and sound transmission!
And see more free tv channels worldwide,lol,73,
