LMR®-400 Helium Hotspot Antenna Cable | Best Quality, Better returns
The Times Microwave LMR®400 cable will absolutly boost the RF signal range and coverage for the Helium Hotspots like COTX-X3, HNT Nebra, Rak Helium Hotspots.
The LMR®-400 assembled cables ensure a fast return on investment, due to there low-loss build and high quality components. Due to the recent changes in regulatory there is nothing more important than lowering the cable loss as much as you can. Every dBm of signal loss you want to eliminate. This cable offers you the best performance for your HNT Helium Mining Hotspot.
N-Female to SMA-Male High Quality connectors
This cable is suited with the highest quality N-Female and SMA-Male connector and connects a N-Male Antenna to a SMA Female Hotspot. Not sure if your hotspot if SMA or RP-SMA? Use the picture below for reference;
LMR®-400 Helium Hotspot Antenna Cable | Low Loss Helium Connection
Due to the new restrictions all hotspots have a lower power output range than before. In Europa this limitation has been set to 25mw / 14dbm. This makes it clear that a high quality antenna cable is more important than ever. The LMR®-400 is designed to eliminate as much db loss as possible.

LMR®-400 Helium Hotspot Antenna Cable vs Regular Coax RG Cable Assemblies
To give you some insight in the difference between the LMR-400 antenna cable vs regular coax rg cables here is some comparison.
- The cable loss of a regular RG-58 over 10 meter (EU 868) is 5.2dB (that is 56.4% efficiency)
- The cable loss of the LMR-400 Helium antenna cable over 10 meter (EU 868) is 1.4db (74.8% efficiency)
The difference is 3.8dB over 10 meters, as you can see it is so important to pick the best possible cable for your helium hotspot setup.
All connectors are waterproof if you connect them the way it should. But we highly suggest using waterproof tape around the connection to prevent any moisture and rain that could weaken the cable.
