    I know this sounds like a stretch, but is there a "cheap" way to measure insertion loss.

    As far as I know, the equipment you'll need is the following:

    Frequency Source
    Network Analyzer
    Detector with calibration source
    Reflection Bridge
    Co-Axial short
    And finally, the cable under test.

    Is there an alternative method that is within a $5000 budget?
