Hi ssabir
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.
