[TowerTalk] SuperFlex Leoni Alternative

I am now able to answer my own question.  The Leoni coax is physically an
exact replacement for SuperFlex, as the Andrew connectors are a perfect fit.
Preliminary bench testing with the MFJ-259 shows flat SWR into a dummy load
from 1.8 to 160 MHz.  I am impressed with the quality of this product.

My plan is to take a 10 foot jumper connected to a new antenna, to install
on the 2 meter repeater on top of a building roof at 500 feet.  The wind in
that area virtually destroys the vertical fiberglass antennas that are
allowed by the building owner.  Wish I could talk him into use of a
Commscope DB four dipole vertical.

I have a 200 foot roll of 1/2 inch Leoni LA FlexLine.  It appears to be the
same as Andrew SuperFlex.  Both have 8 corrugations per inch.  I have
several Andrew F4PNMV2-HC N male connectors, and will try to install one


Anyone know if this stuff is good for jumpers?
