How much power loss in the coaxial cable? I transmitted a signal with 12dBm power and I connected through the coaxial cable to the oscilloscope. Cable Assembly Coaxial is RG-316 59.1" (1.5m) and DSAV084 digital signal analyzer/ oscilloscope. But I measured 12dBm power at the 4Ghz carrier frequency in the scope. For further processing, I need to connect the oscilloscope to another PC via ethernet cable. When I analyzed the signal in the software of that PC, I measured the output -4.52dBm
I think the cable loss is huge. Do you have any idea how I can minimize the loss in the cable?
