I recently came across a relatively inexpensive supply of Times Fiber T10
Drop Cable. The T10 11 Series Drop Cable is used in pole-to-pole and
pole-to-house cable installations and includes a messenger wire. From the
spec sheets (available in .PDF format at http://www.timesfiber.com/), it
seems to line up with RG-11: 75 Ohms, 53% braid (plus foil), 16.2 pF/ft,
85% VF, 0.36 dB/100ft @ 25MHz, .405" OD.
Has anyone used this stuff, know anything about it or know if it would be
suitable for HF use?
