I'm using it matched at 100W on a lot of antennas now, but I've heard
it can take a kilowatt matched. I can't test that, I only run
It's lower loss than RG-8/X and about the same size... so besides
having less mass of metal that has to get warm before the cable melts,
I think it HAS to handle more power... less loss = less heat per cable
It should also have better voltage handling than 8X because of
increased conductor spacing. It probably is slightly WORSE than 8X at
handling higher current than a matched condition...
It's worth a try. A kilowatt with high SWR might cook it, but it's cheap ;-)
As far as connectors, I'd encourage you to go to Home Depot or
somewhere that carries *compression* connectors and check those out.
I like them MUCH better than crimp connectors.
