AS long as its marked Mil spec and is from a reputable Business, I don't
think You have to buy the best...
Although I have just replaced ALL MY coaxial cables with Belden 9913 , only
because the Insurance Company paid for it...
Usually I just use mil spec RG213.... but on long runs at VHF & UHF I
think its worth the extra money for Belden.
