Hi Sam,  this is a 1/2", 50 ohm cable. The more recent models carry an "FXA" 
before the number, which denotes a smooth outer jacket (not corrugated like 
Heliax) and an "FLC" would indicate more flexible, corrugated like Heliax.  
If these ID's are not before the # you have, chances are it is an old cable.  
A basic, std., FXA  1/2" now LISTS for about $ 2.50 per ft and we sell it for 
around $1.80. 
We also sell Heliax, Times and CableWave factory connectors at discount, or 
custom built hard line connectors for about half the cost.

To determine the age of the cable, try calling CableWave at 203 630 3311 (fax 
821 3852)nd see if they can run down any info on the longer # you have.   
$1.00 per foot sounds real good but suggest you test the cable first with an 
MFJ analyzer or whatever.  If I can be of further help, just contact me.
