   UHF / PL259       Ultra-high frequency (UHF) connectors are economical, all-purpose connectors designed with non-constant impedance for use in comparatively low voltage and low frequency applications such as citizens' band (CB) communications systems. UHF connectors are also used in public address systems, closed circuit television (CCTV), civil defense, landing systems, ground control apparatus, ship-to-shore communications, and mobile radio equipment hookups between antenna and transmitters or receivers. PL259 is a screw-on video connector that has been largely replaced by BNC devices. 
   Mini-UHF       Mini-UHF connectors are a miniature version of the original UHF connector. They feature a threaded coupling mechanism for reliable mating. Mini-UHF connectors are designed for use in cellular mobile telephone systems where size, weight and cost are critical. With crimp cable termination for low installation costs, these connectors provide excellent RF performance in applications through 2.5 GHz.

Terminator Performance
   Frequency Range       The range of frequencies through which devices are designed to operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Power Rating       The maximum input rated power of the terminator. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   VSWR       In a system, impedance mismatches cause some of the transmitted energy to be reflected back to its source. The frequency of the signal determines the amount of energy that is reflected. Voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), a unitless ratio ranging from 1 to infinity, expresses the amount of reflected energy at the input of the device. A value of 1 indicates that all the energy passes through. Any other value indicates that a portion of the energy is reflected. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Return Loss       Return loss is a measure of the match between the impedance of the adapter or terminator and the impedance of the system. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Resistance       
   Your choices are...         
   50 Ω       The terminator's resistance is 50 ohms. 
   75 Ω       The terminator's resistance is 75 ohms. 
   Other       Other, unlisted resistance.
