PALConnector

A PAL Connector (also known as a "Belling-Lee" connector, after the company External linkBelling Lee who invented them) is a connector for 75 Ohm coaxial cable.

PAL Connectors are designed to be extremely cheap to produce, and as such provide horrible performance. These connectors were designed to only be used on domestic equipment, and as such you will see them as antenna input/output sockets on your television sets and VCR's. Most houses with an antenna mounted on their roof (MATV) will have one of these on a wall-socket somewhere, too, although the F-Connector is starting to take over in more professional installations.

While the PAL Connector is a very poor quality connector, its loss of signal is quite negligable due to the fact that television signals are usually very powerful, especially with a directional yagi-style TV antenna mounted on your roof.

PAL Connectors prove to be very pathetic at frequencies above 600 MHz, and are most certainly not suitable for Wireless LAN use. Instead, you should use an N-Connector.
