Right Angle F-connector db loss

All,

I have a small utility box that houses my distribution amp mounted on the side of my house. Its a bit cramped in this box and to clean things up a bit I was thinking about installing right-angle F type connectors on the two output ports which would allow me to rearrange the wires in a better way. However, what is that going to cost me in db loss? I can't imagine that radio waves like to take right-angle turns so I am afraid the loss might be high. Unfortunately, I can't find any performance specs, especially down to the TV frequencies.

Thanks.

Less than 1 dB... Not enough to worry about except in the most rare cases.

Thanks. 1dB shouldn't be a problem. I think I have plenty of margin coming out of the amp but just wanted to check before I bought them.
