Feeder Cables
Important role in signal transmission Materials and Construction
-inner conductor: copper wire/tube, copper clad aluminium wire -dielectric: PE foam with high degree of expansion -outer conductor: welded and corrugated copper tube -sheath: abrasion resistant PE

Different cable sizes (most commonly used 1/2", 7/8", 1 5/8") available to satisfy different site requirements Corrugation design enables tight bending radius to ease installation

AntennaLine v 3.2 TKa. 15.11.2003

Feeder Cables
Low attenuation achieved by use of extremely pure copper and low relative permittivity of the insulation Return loss max 24dB for GSM/WCDMA bands Every cable tested and measured before delivery
Typical attenuation (dB/100m) Cable Size Frequency 1/2" 7/8" 900MHz 6.9 3.8 1800MHz 10.1 5.6 2200MHz 11.3 6.3
