Starting a new project and you are wondering what RF connector would be most appropriate?
Found an interesting webpage that has a simple, quick, clear, chart which shows us the maximum frequency range for many types of RF coax connectors.
Click the link to get to the webpage for RF & Connector Technology webpage for connector frequency ranges.
“T V I” means Tele Vision Interference.
The most common causes of TVI are bad powerline insulators, poorly designed LED bulb circuits, poorly designed transmitters. And, sometimes, the receiver is just overloaded by a nearby strong transmitted signal.
I think I found another source of TVI when I stopped in Douglas, Wyoming and spotted this.
It’s just a cellphone snapshot, I wish I had a better image for you. But in the center of the image you can see a UHF television receiver antenna…. and it is mounted directly to the radiating element of an 11 meter CB transmitter antenna.
The goal was to home-brew the most efficient multi-band antenna possible for my aging aluminum bodied motorhome. But the result was an antenna that worked well with 1 milliwatt and refused to work with 10 watt or more!
