Loss while measuring

Adapters and cables will create a measurable loss. Usually when using something like a service monitor, you'd measure the loss of your cables/adapters before doing actual measurements, so that either the monitor can automatically (if it has such functions) or manually calculate the real world measured values.


Technically, if your doing power measurements using a meter like a BIRD or whatever, close enough is usually good enough, and the measured loss from your cables/adapters is negligible and ignorable. Only time you should be concerned is if you get wildly wrong readings, then that could be an indication of a problem.
