Hi all

A little bit off topic ...

What is the best connector for 5.8GHz i.e. 802.11a?

I've heard that type-n is bad because of reflections at this frequency.
so the advise was it would be much better to use
  pigtail X -> SMA , antenna cable SMA -> N-type
insterad of
  pigtail -> n-type, antenna cable n-typ -> n-typ

Any comments, experiences?
