I just read a long technical article on this very subject now for the life of me I can't remember where maybe someone can refresh me. It dealt with 90* connectors @ VHF and up and the loss that came with them but now I can't remember if it was 259's or n' connectors.
It made me rethink my install of of the new 2m M2 5 WL antenna with a mast mounted preamp I had 5 90* connectors in the shack, Power/SWR meter in/out, Amp in/out. FT-847 in. This was a lot of loss period of a weak signal setup but was ok for the old antenna but was to much loss for this antenna/radio.
I redid the operating position for that station so I was able to use LMR-400UF for jumpers behind all the equipment
