I am in the process of moving my tower, and re-cabling the feedlines. I am
going to use surplus 3/4" CATV hardline for the two feedlines, each about
350' long. I will need to splice one line (I only have one piece that is
long enough), and obviously put a connector on each end of each cable.
My question is, is there any reason _not_ to use commercially made CATV
splices and connectors (pin connectors) for this purpose? My guess is that
they are designed for much lower power levels than I intend to use (1500
watts) - but my guess is also that I am better off using "real" connectors
and splices than trying to build my own... They don't seem expensive, and
they look quite well made and water tight.
