Abstract:

Attenuation, VSWR, and stability tests were run on RG-217U cables. Tests were also performed on a special insulated braid version of RG-217U. Test results on this special sample were inconclusive. Comparative results definitely show that SHIPS-D-3598 cable attenuation is about 12.5 is higher than RG-217U from 10 to 1000 mc, about 33 lower at 8 kmc, has much better stability when subjected to heat, flexing, or cold bending, and is in general a superior construction for most wide band applications. A study of methods and material for waterproofing was initiated.
