What does RG stand for in cable?

Radio Guide
When referring to different types of coaxial cables, RG stands for “Radio Guide,” a designation derived from World War II military specifications. Each type of coaxial cable has a different RG rating to help distinguish the cables’ distinct characteristics and specifications.

How do I know what size coax cable I have?

Examine the cable for markings printed on the sleeve. Wipe down the cable using a damp cloth if it’s dirty so you can observe the surface. Check the coaxial cable’s external layer for any markings that include letters and numbers printed on it, particularly near the connector at the end of the cable.

Do coax cables come in different sizes?

The three most common cable sizes are RG-6, RG-11 and RG-59: RG stands for “radio guide.” The numbers of the various versions of RG cable refer to the diameter (59 meaning . Most non-industrial coax is now known as RG-6, but installers may use a thicker cable, like RG-11.

What impedance is RG174?

50 Ohms
Frequency Range DC 1,000 MHz Impedance 50 Ohms Velocity of Propagation 66 % Nominal Capacitance 31.08 [101.97] pF/ft [pF/m] . .

How many ohms is RG59?

75 ohms
RG-59/U is a specific type of coaxial cable, often used for low-power video and RF signal connections. The cable has a characteristic impedance of 75 ohms, and a capacitance of around 20pF/ft (60pF/m).
