RG58 Coax Cable
For vehicle cell signal boosters and special applications with home boosters
RG58 with SMA connectors is most commonly used to connect a vehicle cell signal booster to an antenna when a run of up to 20 feet of cable is needed. RG8 has less signal loss per foot than LMR100 and RG174, the cable types typically used with vehicle systems. RG58 is, however, twice the diameter of RG174 and is more difficult to conceal and run through window openings and door jambs.
RG58 also works well as a short jumper for commercial and residential systems, when 400 coax is too thick to fit through a small opening or the cable needs to be concealed. RG58 with N‑connectors is designed for these types of applications.
If you have any questions about using RG58 or any other coax cable with your system, please contact us and we’ll be glad to help you.
