My FF antenna is installed on a mast on the roof of my 3 floor house my FF box is located in the 2nd floor which is long enough for the coaxial cable , am planing to move my FF box from the 2nd floor to the 1st floor which is not long enough for the coaxial cable to reach , can the coaxial cable be modified to extend its length, i need at least another 7 meters
Most likely the cable supplied with Flight Feeder is LMR240 (or equivalent), with N-male at antenna end and SMA-male at Flightfeeder end. (Flightaware staff is requested to confirm)
If I am right, then the one shown below will meet your requirement for extension.
Note: This particular one is given only for your guidance. You should search eBay, Amazon, and Google the web to find more options (different makes/suppliers and prices) to get a good product at competitive price.
Adding another 7m to the feed line is probably not a great idea, though. The longest cable we ship for FFs is 15m and that is about the longest total length you should use.
Yeah, that would introduce a lot of loss. I have 40 feet/~12m of coax going to my antenna, but I’m using LMR-400.
Thank you guys for the information’s after all i think am going to keep my current setup
