I have to question the quality of monoprice.com cables and whether
they're suitable for use in the shack.  I cut open one of their #619
RCA cables, supposedly made of RG59U and I found a shockingly sparse
braid (5-10%?).

If someone has checked any of their other cables (e.g. #2864) and
found something more satisfying, please holler.  If someone has found
an alternate source to monoprice.com with known good, inexpensive
cables, please respond as well.
