Twin Lead Cable

Twin Lead

A twin lead cable is a flat two-wire line.

The metallic "hooks", at the ends of the wires, are called spade lugs and these make connection with the receiving end of the cable, to what will be hooked up to it.

This flat two-wire line that the twin lead cable has is often referred to as the 300-Ω line. The line maintains an impedance of 300Ω.

It is used primarily as a transmission line between an antenna and a receiver (for example, for TVs and radios).

Each wire within the cable is stranded to reduce skin effects.
