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.

What is cable specification required for WiMAX Application? What type we need to select for ndoor and outdoor applications.
Thanks in advance.

The question you raise is too general to give advice because there are many RG cables with low loss.
You need to do a loss budget for the system you plan to implement based on transmitter power, antenna gain, bandwidth, receiver sensitivity etc. From this, a maximum tolerable loss in the feeder cables can be estimated. Based then on the physical layout constraints of distance between electronic units and the radiating system, you can calculate the maximum tolerable loss per meter. From that you look up the data sheets to find the nearest match.
Hope that helps.
