We've got this special low-loss RP-SMA male to N male extension cable. The cable is 5m long (~16 feet) and has an RP-SMA male connector on one end (which is used to connect to devices such as PCI and USB wireless adapters that have RP-SMA antenna ports on them) and a standard N male connector on the other end. We recommend this extension cable compared to some others online because this has a special CFD-200 low-loss cable. What does this mean? The antenna to which you will connect this has a gain. Let's say for example you will be connecting this to a 9 dBi gain antenna. As the cable in between the antenna and adapter gets longer, you will experience cable loss, which is a drop in the signal gain of the antenna. With low quality extension cables, the huge drop in gain will mean a much lesser range. Our special low loss cable limits the cable loss factor. CFD-200 is the recommended shielding for a cable of 5m length.
Compare gain loss:
915 MHz application: -1.6 dBi (Helium mining/LoRa device)
WiFi 2.4 Ghz application: -2.6 dBi (standard home WiFi networking)
WiFi 5 Ghz application: -3.9 dBi (dual band 2.4/5Ghz WiFi to 5 Ghz networks)
Compare this to a cheaper RG-58 shielded cable of the same length- the gain loss would be -2.5 dBi for 915 MHz, -4.8 dbi for 2.4 Ghz WiFi, and a whopping -8.2 dBi for 5 Ghz WiFi
That means standard RG-58 cables have about 2x times as much gain loss as this cable!
