Test Method for "F" Connector Return Loss

The purpose of this document is to provide a test method for measuring return loss of “F” Male Connectors with Cable in the frequency range of 5 MHz to 1002 MHz by utilizing the time domain-gating feature of the network analyzer. Male “F” connectors that conform to SCTE 123 2011; Specification for “F” Connector, Male, Feed-Through or SCTE 124 2011; Specification for “F” Connector, Male, Pin Type that are used with 75 Ohm flexible RF coaxial cable, such as, but not limited to, SCTE 74 2011; Specification for Braided 75 Ohm Flexible RF Coaxial Drop Cable shall be utilized.
