I bought on clearance from HRO a few years ago a length of LMR600
complete with connectors. Th only problem was that when I cut it to
install a lightning protection device, the new connectors cost an arm
and a leg.
When I needed coax for the HF antennas, I looked at LMR400 and LMR400
UltraFlex but decided on BuryFlex from Davis RF -- although I probably
will not bury it.
