Ten years ago, an article appeared in Microwave Product Digest which stressed the importance of choosing coax from Harbour Industries, the premier QPL approved manufacturer of MIL-DTL-17 coax. Read Article >
Taking the MIL-DTL-17 spec to an even higher level, Harbour Industries with state-of-the-art manufacturing and process control has consistently led the industry with attenuation and VSWR levels way below maximum mil-spec requirements.
Since that article was written, Harbour shipped more than 250,000,000 feet of MIL-DTL-17 coax as scheduled with a 100% Compliance Rate.
Beware of counterfeit products - substandard raw materials, thin silver plating, unapproved insulating materials, misleading surface print - they’re all out there! Don’t be put at risk. If you want to buy a mil-spec RG142 for example, make sure the jacket marking shows the Mil-Spec part number "M17/60-RG142 MIL-DTL-17," our company identification code “27478” and "Harbour Industries."
Don't End Up With a Lemon!
Last but not least, if you need a higher performance version of a MIL-DTL-17 coax, by all means take a look at the many choices Harbour has to offer - lower loss, improved shielding, and higher power handling capabilities. Learn More
