Many thanks for this detailed post. I have exactly that application
here. Does this comment apply to a cable like Commscope 5781 (#18
copper center. foam PE, w/quad shield -- AL foil, 60% AL braid, AL
foil, 40% AL foil)? A few years ago, I bought a 1,000 ft spool of
this to rewire my TV and FM receiving antenna distro. Would you feel
comfortable with an all AL shield like this handling 1,500W on 160-
40? How about higher HF bands?
