No problem at all with Ecoflex 15 on the telsecoping LUSO towers at DR1D and
never any connector problem, more then 1km of that cable is in use there
just for tower cabling.

     I am wondering just how flexible Ecofllex 15 coax may be.   Can I use
this coax successfully for a rotator loop of about 3.5 feet taking 7.0 feet
of coax without causing the coax difficulty?   It is a much less flexible
coax than RG-213 but I am able to provide a fairly loose loop.


      The centre pin is not soldered on their special PL259 plug but instead
uses a compression fitting.   Does this present a problem?   For that matter
the braid is not soldered either but uses a compression fitting somewhat
similar to that of a Type N connector.   Has anyone experience with this
coax and what is the verdict on these connectors?


       Thank you for your advice.
