RG58 Coax Cable
For vehicle cell signal boosters and special applications with home boosters
RG58 coaxial cables with SMA connectors are most commonly used to connect vehicle cell signal boosters to antennas 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 coax 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 cables with N connectors work well in 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.
