ran across this looking for a customer. would have to ask on the connectors as I'm not sure what ones would be compatible w/cables. I would imagine it would either be RFS or Andrew/Commscope.

Wow. I thought LM400 was thick. That cable looks like it would be hard to bend, but great for higher frequencies.

try working w/1 5/8" hard line. that will knock you out if your not careful.

Well I missed this deal. I just got a used 75 foot run of TM-LMR600, 125 shipped with male type N connectors. is slightly more flexible than hardline.  still planning the install. I would love 7/8" but will have to live with this for now.

John,

If you run across any ldf4.5 N connectors let me know it has to be Andrews,Commscope will not work on the older Andrews...William

John,

 

I had a friend give me over 120ft of the LDF4.5-50 or 5/8 Heliax but I am having a problem finding some N connectors for it.I have looked all over this area with no luck to no avail.I noticed Tessco does have them but I am not sure if the Commscope brand will work for the Andrews.If you have any clue let me know I do have a account with Tessco so no problem there.

 

If anyone else has access to and 5/8 Andrews left me know please @ 1.0 loss at 450mhz this should work perfect...William

JohnE there gave a good place for your Heliax connectors. I've used them before & have nothing but good to say.

 

SPD641, 

How long of a run do you have? Ecoflex 15 & Aircocomm are 2 coax (Aircomm uses air cell dielectric) with fabulous loss numbers @ 100 meters

Not as low as Heliax but for the cost I have no complaints. If you have a 200'+ run then I suppose I'd go for the Heliax as well...

Just curious mainly..this for a repeater?

LMR400 and RG213  are all that I use for my antenna farm and have no loss issues that hardline would cure.  Of course, my longest run is only 93 feet... :rolleyes:

LAMBSONB60,

I have a 100ft run I need to swap out so I will have cable left over and found the real Andrews connectors on eBay just trying to figure out if I need the whole lot or not.
