A 10dB in-line satellite attenuator (frequency range 5-2400MHz). F connector male to female. Power pass 500mA, 30V. 75§Ù impedance. Tolerance 2dB.
An attenuator performs the opposite function of an amplifier. While an amplifier provides signal gain, an attenuator reduces signal strength (provides loss), or gain less than 1. Having a signal that is too strong can cause the same kind of reception problems as having a signal that is too weak.
