I was given a couple partly filled spools (~24" diam) of what appears to be 75
ohm coax. The only identification is COMMSCOPE on the coax and Migraheal on
the spool. It has braid wrapped over foil with a very sticky substance between
them and also to the foam.around the center coax. The jacket is quite thick
and not very pliable.
I tried soldering to the braid and to the foil without much success. The
sticky stuff is hard to work with. I don't know if this coax is good for RF
but am planning on using it to bring the M2 2800 rotator pulses back from the
tower which requires a 400' run.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
