LMR400UF is NOT generic, it has a detailed product spec and is made by 
only Times Microwave. There ARE other vendors who sell coax they claim 
is "LMR400 equivalent," but they are LYING!

My current "go-to" vendor for coax for use at HF is Davis RF. I use 
their BuryFlex for 50 ohms, and their RG11 when I need 75 ohms. I've 
measured both. The RG11 has the same specs as Belden 8213, which is 
about the best you can do for 75 ohm coax (other than hard line). Belden 
makes great cables, but their distributor relationships, and the 
associated markups, price them out of the market.
