RG6 is used as a phasing line (half wave balun) with MSquare antennas. 
So far I had no problem at 2KW+ with my 144MHz antennas

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?
