Thanks to all the great topbanders who replied to my request.  At least 15!
I sure didn't htink it would be this difficult.  It is old cable, but looks 
brand new to me.  Must be at least 15 years old.
No wonder we couldn't find anything on the net.
Here is the best reply, and yes, I will confirm with my MFJ-259B once I get 
around to measuring the length.

Ralph, K8KXA got in touch with the Product Manager, Broadband Coax, for 
Commscope and here is what he had to say:


I got feedback from several team members.  What we know is this cable is very 
old, as the numbers listed on the cable pre-date our actual date code system.  
In addition, the UL listing is one that is very old (we have been ETL listed 

a pretty long time).
I spoke with Joe Elko, and he said the measurements provided indicate that this 
is an F6 cable.  Based on this, the Velocity of Propagation would be 85%

Thanks for all your replies and hope to work you on Topband this season. 
Listening with the new Beverage!
