At 95 cents per foot or 78 cents per foot in 500 foot lots the price is
good with LMR-600 now running about $1.40 to $1.50 a foot. YMMV
depending on vendors.
HOWEVER it's the "equivalent" statement that should add a note of
caution. The stuff may be every bit as good as LMR-600 and it may not.
IT may stand up as well, better, or no where near a long as Times Wire
LMR cables. Untill some one knowledgeable tests it out and it's been
used widely (or it's made to spec by a known manufacturer) the quality
remains a question.
To me the LMR cables are great. The LMR - UF cables are not. I've had
good luck with the former and very poor with the latter. Not only did I
have jackets split, I had them develop pin holes in areas that were not
subjected to any abrading or external contact. The jackets in question
were just coming down the side of a mast exposed to the elements.
Possibly some one on here is familiar with that cable and who makes it.
