Path Align-R Cable Information

Question

Can I use my own cable or 'jumper' with the Path Align-R?

Answer

Maybe.

The standard microwave coax cables supplied with the PathAlignR are triple shielded, low loss and operate to 24 GHz. All coax cable is not the same. Always use a good quality microwave coax cable to avoid excess loss. Remember the PathAlignRs are using both cables – one on each box – so the path loss reading includes the combination of cable losses from both ends of the link. One bad cable may reduce the signal level so much that PathAlignRs are unable to find each other.
