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.
