Does anyone have an idea of how losses in coaxial fittings vary with signal frequency?

I know coaxial cable attenuation is frequency-dependent, but what about their end fittings, and connectors? Are they fairly constant, or are they as sensitive to signal frequency as the coaxial cable? Fyi, this is for composite video signal, in the 0-20 MHz range.

for the frequency range you are looking at it's not a problem the characteristics of the connector don't vary much.

The insertion loss of a compression connector is ~0.1dB across the board.
