Many thanks to all who responded to my question about
CATV cable connectors.I am familier with the clamp and
plastic bottle weatherproof method but,Im afraid that wont
be the route I go.I will look into some of the manufactured
fittings that were suggested,but I am probably leaning to a
homemade unit just because I like to build these types of 
things.For those of you that asked what frequencies and 
power ratings I will be using this cable for:I am using it strictly
for HF frequencies and  legal limit power.I do have an additional
question though:I was told not to forget cutting this 75 ohm
cable to a multiple of a 1/2 wavelength.I plan on building 50 ohm
to 75 ohm transformers,I assume the 1/2 wavelength multiple
will not need to be taken into consideration.Also,since I am going
to run one of my lengths of coax to a tribander,which frequency
would one choose to use as the 1/2 wavelength multiple?The other
piece I plan to use will go to a 40 mtr beam and a 160 mtr inverted V.
The same question comes to mind.I will let you all know how it turns
out and will see you on the bands.
