Upon learning more about the intended appication, our AWC rep was able to make a recommendation that would save the customer precious installation time. To learn all about the ins and outs of this custom RG179 cable our rep was able to recommend, read the full case study here.

Joke of the Month


Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep.

Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: “Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see.”

Watson replied: “I see millions and millions of stars.”

Holmes said: “And what can you conclude from that?”

Watson replied: “Well, if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like Earth out there. And if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life.”

And Holmes said: “Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent.”
