I ran 1200W on CW/SSB into a 75M sloper with up to a 3:1 VSWR for about 15 years. An ice storm and big tree branch killed it and all I had on hand was a couple of odd lengths of RG-213 to replace it.
Lots of center sag now so its on the needtodo list.

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....
