Forward Transmission Loss

90 Degree "N" Connector

W3RJW

Shown above is a plot of the loss through a 90 degree type "N" connector for a frequency range of 450 Mhz to 15 Ghz. There was no appreciable loss up to a frequency of about 12 Ghz. Three different connectors, from three different manufactures, where tested with similar results. In the future we will look at VSWR over the same frequency range.
