Let's talk coax. I'm putting the station back together after some time.
What we have here are several items of coax; all is RG 213/U Type Extra UV
Resistant and is at least ten years old:
* Several lengths have lived a sheltered life; always indoors connecting
things in the shack.
* Several lengths have always lived outdoors.
* And some significant length is still on the roll in the barn.
What would you do? Replace the outdoor stuff? Use shack stuff? Use the
un-used roll? Throw it all away and start fresh?
