Comet Antennas CK-3 3/8-24 - CK-3 3/8-24
The Comet CK-3 3/8-24 Deluxe Mobile Mount Cable Assemblies are an ideal solution for those who seek superior-quality, low-loss cable for their mobile antennas. These versatile assemblies can function as mobile mounts or hole-mounts in flat sheet metal.
These assemblies are perfect for screwdriver or ham stick-type antennas with 3/8 in. x 24 connectors. They include 5 meters (approximately 16.4 feet) of cable, with the first 18 inches of the cable being mini coax, which allows for easy feeding through weather seals without causing any damage. The remaining section of the low-loss coax has a disassemblable PL-259 connector, making routing more straightforward.
A note about Comet coax: "The mini coax is neither RG-188 nor RG-174… it is actually 1.5D-QEFV Japanese coax. Comet states it is 'RG-174 type' coax because they have similar loss and diameter specifications. Initially RG-188 was used in comparison but was changed to the RG-174 comparison because they are more similar. The balance of the coax is Japanese 3.5D-QEFV. There is no 'RG' equivalent to 3.5D-QEFV. RG-58 connectors will not fit the 3.5D-QEFV coax, the Comet coax has a larger outside diameter and a larger central core and has about 30 percent less loss than RG-58. All of the coax cables produced by Comet use the Comet (Japanese) low loss coax. Mick Stwertnik - NCG Company"
