For myself, loss, physical integrity and possibly swr.
Others might have other things to add.
My own testing here with a repeatable lash up of my own devising has
shown some pigtails being 12db!!!!! down from apparently identical
While I can not be sure of the absolute loss in db with my test rig,
unit-to-unit variance should not be over 1db, IMHO.

You've given me an idea or two -
1. Maybe I could find a cable vendor who will sell pre-certified 5.8

What qualities would you want tested and certified - just dB loss?
How much do you think the industry would be willing to pay for a
tested and certified 5.8 GHz pigtail compared to the cost of

I need mmcx to N-Female and u.fl to N-Female. 6-12 inch lengths will
