Carrier sweep specs exceding cable manufacturer's specs

    Some of the carriers we work for have specs that exceed the cable RL specs with no jumpers and bends in coax. On top of that they supply superflex as jumper material which has a very high RL and there are usually two jumpers on top for TMAs. Just wondering if anyone else has run into this problem?

    We have run into these RL issues as well, but if you can get a guy who knows anything he should be able to approve your installs based upon the cable specs. If not, contact the manufacturer, oftentimes they can be very helpful in letting the customer see what they're asking for can't be achieved. Believe it or not, a lot of specs are cut and pasted and it could be a different supplier.
