Difference RG58 to standard coaxial cable:

The RG58 is a 4.85 mm thick, favourable coaxial radio frequency cable.
Single shielded and suitable for most applications, e.g. measuring lines and antennas.
The conductor is isolated by the dielectirc medium and is in the centre of the cable. The gemoetry must be very accurate and precise. When a coaxial cable is bent with a smaller bending radius than permitted, the electrical values won't be met anymore and the cable is no longer suitable for certain applications.

The following connectors are recommended:

BNC, TNC, RP-TNC, N, UHF, Mini-UHF, RP-SMA, SMA, Lemo S1 et al.
