FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T9B10)

Q) What electrical difference exists between the smaller RG-58 and larger RG-8 coaxial cables?

A) RG-8 cable has less loss at a given frequency

NJ2X Notes:
Besides electrical differences, physical handling and routing are sometimes considerations.  For example, you would not want to use a heavy and stiff coaxial cable for a short cable between an HT and a handheld antenna.
