[TowerTalk] RG6

I'm wondering if anyone has worked with RG6 for power
transmission, or might know the limitations.

Radio Shack recently added a line of "waterproof" crimp 
connectors, and a crimping tool for use with this stuff.
And I have a good size box of the cable lying around.

It strikes me that it's lighter in weight than rg8x, and
better insulated. Possibly lower loss. Where I'm running an 
OCF dipole, having 75 ohm line rather than 50 isn't going to matter.
Tuner won't know the difference.

Will need to change out my xmsn line before winter, to 
replace the section the mower scalped...and am thinking
about experimenting with it.  

Anyone care to share first hand experience, or strong 
caveats?  How about adapters from F to PL259?
