The M2 VHF and UHF beams all use RG6 coaxial baluns and the beams are all rated 
legal limit power; the balun would need to handle half that.

I've put 1500W into my 6m M2 beam lots of times, so the balun was exposed to 
750W at 50 MHz, in the very hot summer sunshine, for many years.

Hi Group,
Does anyone know the power handling capability of RG6 coax? Assuming it is used 
in a low SWR run.
I have seen comments on the net of it being able to handle 200 watts, 500 
watts, 700 watts and one guy says he puts 1500 through it without problem.

And here's another dumb question...If a single run of it can handle say 500 
watts would a double parallel run of it be able to handle 1K (and would the 
impedance of it then become 37.5 ohms?)

Inquiring minds want to know....
