I bought on clearance from HRO a few years ago a length of LMR600 
complete with connectors. Th only problem was that when I cut it to 
install a lightning protection device, the new connectors cost an arm 
and a leg.

When I needed coax for the HF antennas, I looked at LMR400 and LMR400 
UltraFlex but decided on BuryFlex from Davis RF -- although I probably 
will not bury it.
