    Coaxial Cable Attenuation Changes versus Temperature

    A characteristic of coaxial cable is that its attenuation varies with changes in temperature. This is true for both drop and hardline cable. Coaxial cable attenuation is provided at a reference of 68°F (20°C) by the manufacturer. Attenuation increases as temperature increases and decreases as temperature decreases. This is because the electrons that make up the conductors have more difficulty propagating (moving) through a warmer conductor.

    As temperature varies from the reference, cable attenuation changes at a rate of about 1.0% for every 10°F change in temperature, or 0.1% for every 1°F change in temperature. Since this effect is predictable, we can calculate the new, expected attenuation at the new temperature using the formula:

    αt = αREF[1 + 0.0011(tF – 68)]


    αt = attenuation at new temperature tF (°F)

    αREF = reference attenuation at 68°F

    tF = new temperature °F
