Jim, you must have misread my post.  I was looking for a place to buy a 
small quantity of Belden 8267, not for someone to buy it for me.  I had 
spend considerable time searching for the coax prior to my initial post and 
found a couple of places selling by the foot, but were out of stock and a 
lot of places selling 500 ft and 1000 ft rolls.  Shortly after my towertalk 
post, K8RI posted that in his Google search he found a number of places 
selling it in 100ft and 200ft pieces.  After K8RI's post, I search even more 
and I still didn't find what I was looking for.  So I asked him for some 
examples of the places he found since I did not have the search success that 
he apparently had and I have yet to receive a response.  AES used to sell it 
by the foot and also in 100' rolls and they told me today that it was 
Belden's decision for them to no longer sell this product.  I am not really 
sure what this meant.  So,  I ordered it from a place that was out of stock 
and they are supposed to fill my order early next month.

Wow, would be even more helpful if he would just buy it for you.
