Note stray piece of shield that could potentially short to the center conductor.
Note the wire
shielding swept back (below) ready to accept the spin on connector.
Ensure that the foil shield does not short to the center conductor.
Spin on F connectors in chrome and gold plate are normally in stock for RG-59 and RG-6.
All television (RF) coaxial cables have an impedance of 75 ohms. RG-59, RG6, and
are examples of 75 ohm cables. The designation of a cable is based on its
dielectric (insulation) diameter not its outside diameter.
Dielectric Diameters O.D. (outside diameter)
RG-59 .146 inches
RG-6 .180 inches
RG-6A .185 inches
RG-11 .280 inches
