Questions about coaxial cables, including different types of cable, connectors, adapters, and other topics.

Coaxial cables have two conductors separated by an insulator. The outer conductor, or the shield, wraps completely around the insulated inner conductor. A coaxial cable is typically utilized to connect a device to an antenna, or to another device.

Questions should relate specifically to the properties of coaxial cables in general or a specific type of coaxial cable. Questions about connectors, including soldering or crimping, or about adapters are also on topic. Finally, questions can be about the use of coaxial cable to create baluns or other matching "circuits".
