A couple of years ago, there was a warehouse on the East Coast full of this
stuff that was purchased by a cell wireless company who then proceeded to
go belly up before they could use it. It got sold VERY cheap, a friend
bought half a truckload or so, and I bought a couple of spools from him. If
you read the datasheet (available online), it's clear that this is a cable
specifically designed for use at UHF, and a 10 second look at the physical
cable will tell you that it isn't designed to flex. It is a nice cable, but
I can't vouch for how weatherproof it might be.
