Hi Phil, per your request, power ratings LMR vs. Heliax (I'll use the 
previsous disussion point:  LMR600 (.590" OD) and LDF4-50A (.630" OD).  
Unpublished is the 1.5 MHz Times # but the slope would appear that it's quite 
linear in the HF thru mid microwave so   I think reasonable to assume linear 
to 1.8.  will ask my Times contact Monday.   Bottom line,  the 30 MHz should 
give you idea of scope of power handling and that it obviously increases down 
to 1.8.
LDF4 at 30 MHz:  6.31 kW.....1.5 MHz:  28.6 k
LMR600:  30 MHz:   3.1 kW....1.5 MHz: non published but I should have it from 
Times Monday morning.

<< Please post the power ratings on LMR vs Heliax @ 1.8 and 30 mhz.
 This data is nearly impossible to find, and usually not included in QST and
 CQ ads.
 Many thanks!
