This course is primarily aimed at wireless or microwave installers and technicians - those involved in hands-on termination. Quality control, project managers and anyone who works directly or indirectly with transmission line assemblies.


  • Provide basic transmission line characteristics

  • To ensure that you understand about different cable constructions, shielding, insulation, center cores, over jacketing etc

  • Investigate different connector types, assembly and construction together with termination videos

  • Grounding and Weatherproofing

Key Topics:

Starting with basic transmission principals, which helps the student to understand why cables have to be looked after during installation, the course goes on to provide exercises in terminating connectors onto CNT cables. Connector terminations are explained, with accompanying videos to ensure that all steps are covered. We also look at cable handling and securing, together with grounding and weatherproofing.

  • Lesson 1 Transmission Line Characteristics. Cable design, impedance and return loss, attenuation, component matching, phase and frequency, dc resistance and cable design.
  • Lesson 2 Connector Attachment for CNT Braided Coax. Specification sheets – understanding. CNT Cable construction, Impedance, Foaming, Attenuation, center conductors, insulation material, return loss shielding effectiveness, resistance.
  • Lesson 3 Cables and Connectors, Connector Types, crimp, clamp, panel and pcb, braided assemblies, tools and accessories
  • Lesson 4 Cable and Connector Accessories. Hoisting grips, cable hangers, cable entry, grounding kits, lightning protection and weatherproofing in all environments
