Bob: My Times Wire and Cable book has rather complete info on it. Pwr rating
10mhz 1250w, 50mhz 600w, max voltage rating 1200rms. It is the same as
RG188a but jacket is FEP rather than PTFE. If you are thinking about using
ferrite beads of small size I think the bead losses would be a problem at
other than low power.

RG316 is a .1" diameter cable with an unlikely 1250 Watt average power
rating at 10 MHz.
Has anyone used short lengths of this cable to make choke baluns for low
band use?
My searches have yielded no info.
