Digiwave Coaxial Cable with 90% Braid - 500 ft. is rated
Rated 4 out of
Is a very good price. However, the braid is of a metal that WILL NOT solder so if you make a cable you must get ends that either crimp or screw on. For this reason alone I rate it lower than 5 stars- if the braid would solder I would give it 5 stars easily.
I have used a length of it for a month now connecting my G5RV Jr antenna to my HF rig using PL-259 connectors and I am getting a very good signal with very little loss over about 50 feet (including dirty choke of 20 feet). I was lucky as when I went online to purchase, the site offered $10 off my first purchase so it was even cheaper. I bought 500 feet for the cost of 50 feet locally, and I still have enough cable for the rest of my life!
I wish Lowe's would make a deal with the manufacturer for RG-8 or 213 as RG-58 is limited in use.
