Test Method for "F" Connector Return Loss In-Line Pair

The purpose of this procedure is to provide instructions to measure the Return Loss characteristics of a pair of type “F” connectors and the cable interface, inserted in the middle of a cable, from 5 MHz to 1002 MHz. This test method makes use of the time domain gating feature of the network analyzer to remove the near end and far end test set connector effects from a type “F” pair in the middle of the cable, joined by a type F (female) – type F (female) adapter.
