    well, Holland Electronics doesn't have the product E233577 in their database, perhaps you could tell us about other mark on the cable ?

    good it has M10 threads

    as to 50 vs 75 Ohm impedance, it's a parameter of RF cable what circuits dictate
    usually for home equipment everything is 75 Ohm, professional - 50 Ohm

    I would assume that's 50 ohm cable and introducing 75 ohm in the middle is going to cause some mismatch (loss) plus the F connectors and a couple of barrels will be more loss. That being said if I needed to extend the antenna location that is exactly what I would try. The worst that can happen is a loss of $10. :) However, I'm not telling you to do that, just what I would try! :)

    I just got the cable... same markings as above.


    Length is 8-10 feet.

    I forgot to measure it before I installed it.
