Hi Eric,
    I just staple (DX Engineering) standard RG-6 to the soil and it sinks
into the sod.   RG6 is not expensive and if it lasts a few years I am happy.
In my case the lengths to my receive antennas are all over 100M long so your
run sounds very short.   The expense of RG213 buryflex for such a seemingly
short run should not be much.   I think DX Engineering has RG6 coax which is
made for your application.   In Ireland we make due with what is available -
the standard TV coax.

I have a need to bury the RG-6 or RG-59 cables from my (proposed)
receive antennas, as they will be physically located on my neighbor's
property (I live in the city and the lots are 44 feet wide). Conduit
is not an option.

What brand/type of cable or techinique for buriel should I use?
Buryflex is only avaliable in the "RG-213 "style"
