It is a fairly comprehensive spec sheet. The questions are 1) Who is 
Shireen?  I've never heard of them. The website lists a rather broad 
product line, but very much geared toward UHF applications. 2) If it's 
made in the same factory, why does it not have Times name on it?  3) What 
is the selling price? 4) What are you going to do with this cable? If 
your application is UHF, it may be a good choice. If it is HF, you may be 
better off without the water absorbing properties of a foam dielectric, 
which offers no better attenuation at HF.
