I would like to use LMR-600 UF on my crank up tower all the way up to the 
antenna without a rotor loop.  From what I understand
the UF (ultraflex) has a stranded center conductor and would have the 
flexibility needed.   The only problem is that it has a TPE jaket
which is only good for 7 years or so.  The reguar LMR-600 has a  solid center 
condutor (aluminum/copper clad) not stranded, but
has the good TP jacket like Bury Flex has.

I can't have the UF with TP jacket.  :-(

Any other options that you know of for a low loss feedline (like the LMR-600) 
that is flexible and has a good jacket ?


I don't completely understand your question, but what I
use on my HDX-5106 is RG-218 to go to the top of the tower,
and then a rotor loop consisting of a short section of Bury-Flex.
The rotor loop is connected to the RG-218 with a rigid
90 degree adapter.  It works for me.
