I don't think that the boss is quite ready to let me dig up the yard and bury PVC. Simpler solution for the moment will be to run the coax on the outside of the fence where the pup can't get to it.
However, in about a year or so, I hope to do major work in the backyard, at which time I plan to lay down a permanent coax run to the vertical. At that time (since I'll be digging up a good bit of it anyway) PVC becomes realistic... and that is in the plans. But Lowe$? My remaining slaves, er, friends at Home De$pot would never forgive me! (unless they went to work at the new Lowe$ store!) 73 -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Mike(W5UC) & Kathy(K5MWH) Sent: Thursday, April 12, 2007 8:31 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED]; DX Chat Reflector Subject: Re: [DX-CHAT] Coax At 05:57 PM 4/12/2007, Ron Notarius W3WN wrote: >Any suggestions on where to get good coax at a reasonable price without >waiting 5 weeks for Dayton? > >Preferably Beagle-proof? HMMMM, this sounds familiar. It seems that only roughly a month ago I decided I had had enough. My rotor indicator had quit working, the 30 meter yagi feedline was shorted, and the 18 mHz antenna had a very high SWR. Lucifur? Uhhhh, no; &^$%$#@ squirrels! So with an adequate supply of LMR400 at hand we/I decided that the little buggers had chewed up my coax & rotor cable for the last time, and it was off to Lowe's. Long story short, the transmission lines (except the heliax) and rotor cable now go from the shack wall up the tower inside a nice 110 foot run of 1.5" schedule 40 PVC pipe. You might give it some consideration. 73, Mike, W5UC "age & treachery will overcome youth & skill" http://www.suddenlink.net/pages/w5uc/ Subscribe/unsubscribe, feedback, FAQ, problems http://njdxa.org/dx-chat To post a message, DX related items only, [EMAIL PROTECTED] This is the DX-CHAT reflector sponsored by the NJDXA http://njdxa.org Subscribe/unsubscribe, feedback, FAQ, problems http://njdxa.org/dx-chat To post a message, DX related items only, [EMAIL PROTECTED] This is the DX-CHAT reflector sponsored by the NJDXA http://njdxa.org
