Subject: [TowerTalk] weird coax
Grabbed some stuff they were going to throw away at work. no type marked on
it, only mfg info is "IT&T Federal Cable REC". Looks almost new so thought
it might be good for something. About the size of RG-6, but has thinner
center conductor, partial air dielectric, and very tight single layer braid
shield. Odd part is that it has very high loss. maybe some kind of early
version of RG-126 or RG-301?? Any idea what this might be used for?

## Give it to Roger. K8RI. He will then have so much loss to his 160/80m
ant's, that his 5:1 swr at the band edges will then drop like a rock.
