Martin, Its really first about expected loss for 30 Mhz - isn't it?  Why put
1KW into a cable that has loss of 1.8dB per 100 ft?  How long a run are you

Definitely not feeling the Google love today!

Anyone have an idea of the 30MHz power handling capability for RG6A/U and
Belden 9104?

I have some RG59A/U as well but having seen RG58 melt I'm not inclined to
try it at 1kW.
