Abstract:

Results of the VSWR sweep test performed on the RG-217V cable indicated that small impedance discontinuities can cause large standing waves over narrow frequency bands. These large standing waves are not always detectible from both ends of the cable. The watertightness test was conducted on 18 sample constructions of which 10 met the minimum requirement of 10 cc maximum leakage after exposure to 25 p.s.i. for 6 hours. The watertightness test results were used to narrow the sample constructions for manufacture and further investigation. Author
