Abstract : The insertion loss of specially developed 1 5/8 inch rigid coaxial transmission line and several passive components were predicted theoretically and confirmed by measurement, individually and as a completely assembled network for a low noise receiving system. The results show that the components have inserted losses of 0.01 dB to 0.06 dB depending on type, and a total network insertion loss of less than 0.2 dB. Comparison of calculated and measured values show the accuracy to be within three thousandths of a dB. (Author)
