My only experience with 9913 is a bad one. Lightning blew it up (didn't faze 
the 213) I had up. I fortunately had the services of people who worked in the 
nuclear power field who had the proper knowledge and the necessary material to 
insure that there would be no moisture to get in.I had everything properly 
grounded. This was in 1989, and if I get serious again on VHF/UHF, I will go 
with the LMR cables. I just don't like that coax pipe as a friend of mine calls 
it.If I had been smart, I would have bought some W8ZD(now available from N8ET 
at Kanga)matching transformers and used BIG 75 ohm cable TV hardline for 2 SSB 
and 432 SSB. Good feedline costs money, but it is worth it when the bands are 
marginal, when you need that extra dB or so.
