I’m working on a project
involving antenna installations on a navy ship. The
specifications call for using triaxial antenna
cable, i.e. coaxial cable with two separate AND
I’ve done a lot of antenna
installations in many sorts of environments and
normally I use double braided cable like RG-214 or
foil+braid cable. This normally satisfies all
requirements for shielding as foil+braid cable has a
shielding efficiency of around -90dB.
been searching the internet for more knowledge, and
I’ve found some manufacturers like Times that makes
triaxial cable and others like Trompeter and King
that makes connectors.
The cable specs are
not so impressive, they seem to be equivalent to the
foil and braid double shielded coax. The pricing is
however very impressive
Also the connectors look very expensive.
what are the true benefits of using triax for HF and
VHF shipborne antennas? Has it got something to do
with EMP protection levels?
appreciate any input on this from someone more
knowledgeable then I.
