Mike....I've been wondering about the "other" RG-213's too. I've been using
the RG-213 that Texas Towers sells which they say is Mil spec cable,
buriable and only 36 cents a foot. I've never buried it, but it's worked
well for the past three years without any problems so far. I'm also
considering using the RF Davis BuryFlex in my new antenna installation.
