Q:I have an amplified tv antenna. I need to extend the cable to the preamp on the antenna pole. Will this device allow the D.C.power to pass up to the preamp?

A:  Yes, but I would recommend running just a longer coax cable direct if you can snake a new one.

      Q:Someone mentioned that one side is longer than the other, which I noticed when I bought the pack of 2 at 1Ghz. I also noticed that the one side is slightly smaller in diameter. The smaller (in diameter) side will not attach to either of my coaxial cables. Has anyone noticed this issue with the 3Ghz adapters?

      A:  That is designed so you can mount it in a mount in a box.

      A:  Hi CanYouHearItNow I just grabbed a pack off the shelf and verified they are OK. Not sure why you are having trouble. The connectors are called F-81 barrels and can be used to splice two pieces of coax together or can be used as bulk head connectors on a piece of equipment. We no longer supply the small nuts used for that though anymore. If you like send me a note and I will call you thanks Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

        Q:How much signal loss can I expect when splicing this to my comcast cable to extend length? less than a splitter right?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Doug while we never recommend splicing a coax cable these adapters only add about 1/2 of a dB of signal loss so pretty low. Definitely less than the 4 dB or more a splitter will add to the loss. Good question Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

        by|May 4, 2023

          A:  Virtually none - the splicers, if tightened securely, are almost the same loss as if your two cables were one.

          A:  bhata You can use it outdoors but make sure to buy the compression F connectors that are weatherproof. The barrel buy itself is not weatherproof. Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

            A:  This connector is not rated (on the package) for outdoor use. According to the cable you are using, and the environment, you may be able to seal it with tape or RTV-type silicone. Use your own judgment.

            by|May 4, 2023

            A:  Yes, this can be used outdoors.

              I only needed one head to buy a pack of 10 when I opened it. Somebody had already opened it and taken one out so I only had nine.

              It does as expected. Nothing more or less.
