I suggest DX Engineering for either their DXE-400MAX or RG-213/U. 
I like that the DXE400MAX cable has a 19-strand center conductor 
whereas most other "RG8-ish" coaxes have only 7 strands. The PE 
outer jacket is a plus for UV-resistance and keeping moisture 
DXE's prices are OK and, when you $99 or more, ground shipping 
is included. When I erected my tower, I realized I would need 
close to 500' of "RG8-ish" cable. After looking at alotta cable, 
I settled on the DX Engineering's DXE-400MAX. It appears to be the 
same as Davis RF's Bury-FLEX™ but, the shipping deal made the 
The Shireen stuff costs a little less but, the center conductor 
is solid copper-covered aluminum, and shipping is NOT included.
