RG59 BNC Coax Cable - 6FT BNC Male to Male RG59 Cable

These RG59 BNC cables are primarily used for radio antenna, CCTV, and other video applications. This RG59 BNC patch cable features a rugged design for tough environments as well as superior shielding to block RFI/EMI interference. RG59 has a thinner diameter than RG6 (0.242 inches vs. 0.332 inches). This decreased diameter means RG59 is less expensive to produce than RG6. Generally, RG6 is recommended for longer runs; however, for all lengths of BNC patch cables, there should be no difference in terms of performance.

Features:

  • Length: 6 Foot
  • Connector A: BNC Male
  • Connector B: BNC Male
  • Dual Shielded
  • 22 AWG Copper covered steel Conductor
  • RG59 Coaxial Cable
  • 75 Ohm Impedance
  • Fully Molded Connectors
  • Diameter: 0.242 inches

    These cables are excellent! Price was so much more reasonable that anywhere else I looked. These are the exact same specs as cable that cost x10 more literally. Shipping was blazing fast as well. Two thumbs up!

    I have bought a bunch of cables and adapters from showmecables.com recently. All cables and adapters preform to the standard advertised. I can't buy the materials and tools to make the as inexpensively as purchasing them. I won't take the time to review each and every one but I will say that I am very satisfied with the purchases and the service I have received. I will continue to use them as a resource.

    PROS: good quality
    CONS: the shortness makes them a little stiff
    I bought to make it easier to swap out gear with my radio I wanted short cables so they wouldn't take up a lot of room. If i had it to do over again I might have went with 18" cables instead but that is not their fault I got what I needed/wanted and hindsight is 20/20.

Q: What does BNC stand for?

A: BNC stands for Bayonet Neill-Concelman. They are named after the bayonet locking mechanism and their inventors.

Q: What are BNC connectors commonly used for?

A: BNC connections are typically used on RF, video and Ethernet applications.

Q: What does “RG” mean?

A: The "RG" is short for "Radio Guide," a term that dates back to the World War II era, when the military made heavy use of coaxial cable, and developed a set of standards to specify different grades of coax and their applications. Even though we still refer to coaxial cables by their original RG numbers today, these standards are now obsolete in regard to actual military use.

Q: What is the difference between RG59 and RG6?

A: Each of these coaxial cables has a characteristic impedance of 75 ohms. RG59 cable has a smaller diameter center conductor than RG6, resulting in higher signal loss. RG59 cables are typically specified for use as equipment patch cords because of their smaller bend radius and enhanced flexibility. Since RG6 cables exhibit less attenuation than RG59, they are more commonly used for distributed cabling and are recommended for use up to 295 ft.

Q: What is the difference between 50 and 75 Ohm Cables?

A: 50 and 75 Ohm values refer to the impedance of the coaxial cable. Impedance is a measure of resistance, in the cable, to the flow of electrical energy. There really is no “good” or “bad” impedance, just the right impedance for your application. For 75 Ohm cable, the primary application is the transmission of a video signal. In the case of 50 Ohm cable, it is a data signal that is for the most part being transmitted.

Q: What does AWG stand for?

A: AWG is the gauge size and denotes the thickness of the cable. The lower the gauge of the cable, the thicker the cable will be. AWG stands for "American Wire Gauge" and is a standardized wire gauge system used throughout the industry.
