Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

I am trying
to learn the basics of power handling (average/ peak power calculations,
dielectric withstanding voltage, corona voltage, etc) that I have to
apply for RF connectors and cables.
Can anyone please direct
to me some books or websites that can give me detailed information on
Thanks in advance!

Johnson Components has a nice document
that covers a lot of the ground you are looking for:
Time Microwave has good info in the back of
their cable catalog. This page has all the different sections available
separately, because the entire catalog is 27 MB (look near the bottom
of the page starting at around catalog page 63):
That should get you started. Beyond that, check cable and connector
vendor websites (http://www.rfcafe.com/vendors/vendor-links.htm), and
even call to talk to applications engineers to get specific questions
