Consensus seems to be the Wireman, so I'll look into that.  But in a close
second is the Radio Works, I'll look into that too.  I'm strongly
considering the RW cable as a "hold" until Dayton -- yes, I just did my
taxes! <g>

The suggestions on punishment for the dog were, ah, interesting, but I don't
think my daughter will let me.  There are also laws against some of those in
this state!  I just can't put temptation back in her reach -- or the
replacement coax within reach of her jaws, that's for sure!

Oh -- KQ3DX has tentatively offered me emergency loan of his shack,
hopefully on Saturday, to take a shot at N8S.  Considering things, I'd
rather have done it from home, but my choices (and time) are limited.  Of
course, the was things are going, I hope I don't bring disaster down on his
head!

Now, if anyone needs some short sections of unchewed RG-8X, let me know!

Any suggestions on where to get good coax at a reasonable price without
waiting 5 weeks for Dayton?

Preferably Beagle-proof?

The puppy destroyed my spliced in section today... and dug up and chewed up
most of the ~60' RG8X run.  I am not a happy camper.  My daughter has
pleaded for mercy, so I haven't done something unmentionable to the pup...
yet.  (I have decided, though, that Lucy's last name must have been "Fur"
before... think about it)

I may have enough laying around to do a temporary replacement (and it's
going to be placed on the OUTSIDE of the fence this time... I kept it at
ground level to keep it stealth, I never figured on this!) which would make
this a moot point.  If not, then I have to decide whether to get a temporary
fix (RadioWorks has a nice deal on-line on a 100' section of RG-8X with
connectors for under $30) and wait for Dayton, or just bite the bullet & get
something done now.  I'm just so used to shopping at Dayton or at the
Breezeshooter's hamfest for coax needs that I'm at a bit of a loss as to
where to start looking.  Yes, you can find coax everywhere, but until you
get your hands on it, you don't always know what you're buying and how much
it truly is.

So much for N8S.  I wonder if I'll even get a shot at BS7H this time around?
Maybe someone is trying to tell me something...

And, no, I can't afford 50 ohm hardline right now.  Tempting as it is.

Any suggestions welcome.

73, ron w3wn
