I am trying to set up a Z3801A and a ThunderBolt to operate off of one 
symmetricom 58532A antenna using a symmetricom 4-port smartsplitter.  The 
Z3801A manual suggest using LMR 400 cable which is a 50 ohm cable which is 
compatible with the antenna.  The thunderbolt which I receive has a type F 
connector and the thunderbolt manual suggest using 75 ohm rg59 cable. Will I 
have a problem connecting the thunderbolt to the smartsplitter using LRM400 
50 ohm cable?  The thunderbolt which I received came with a type f to bnc 
connector, but isn't a bnc connector underrated to handle the 1.5 GHz
