A friend of mine just gave me a bunch (guessing 200' - 400') of hardline in
about 6-8 pieces. Some pieces with connectors some without. So I plan to use
this on two VHF antennas, and on a separate UHF antenna. 

So questions:

1. How do you put connectors on this stuff?

2. If it looks good, no cracks and the outside looks good, is it probably
good? It has been sitting in a coil, outside, under and against a tree for a
few years.

3. On the pieces that have no end, if I cut off 1' - 2' I should be able to
use it because I doubt if any water can penetrate that far up.

4. My MFJ-259A should tell me if it is not good, as it has a coax loss
measurement. Correct? What is the best way to test it?

5. Should I use UHF or N connectors? The pieces that have connectors have
