AmazonWhere can I order the,Rg8x?
Depends on a few things:Anyone recommend antenna coax cable, for the HP 2?
I want to put up an outside antenna
FYI for those who might be interested in the cost per foot of the various coaxes mentioned above:100' of RG-6 at 850 MHz has 9.017 dB of loss. That is a LOT of loss!
100' of Andrew LDF4-50A 1/2" hardline at 850 MHz has 2.037 dB of loss.
Even better, 100' of Andrew LDF5-50A 7/8" hardline at 850 MHz has 1.143 dB of loss.
RG8X has approximately double the loss compared to RG6 at all frequencies in your linked attenuation chart and it costs $0.44 per foot (https://www.rfparts.com/rg8x-bel.html) which is 33% higher than the cost of RG6 ($0.33 per foot) from the same vendor.
Actually it is a big deal. The cable you are recommending has double the loss, and is more expensive than RG6. Until you figure out why that is bad, you should probably refrain from giving online advice.I use it and like it fine unless you have a really long run...no big deal.
RG8X huh? Let's see...100' of RG8X at 850 MHz has a whopping loss of 12.706 dB.
