Tim,
The only issue I have had is that if you get any moisture between the braid
and foil shield..  you will soon have the "million diode marching band"
serenading your receiver in a duplex environment.  It happened to a guy just
South of here when a hunk was used in a duplexer harness a while back.
Replaced the jumper and all was well again...

Also the braid is aluminum, so it is pretty fragile to any twisting etc
where it attaches to a connector.  Also makes it somewhat difficult to
solder to.  Use the crimp-on style connectors from www.Fab-Corp.com and
provide some kind of stress relief to the connector.  Try not to nick the
center conductor when you strip it back as it is copper-clad aluminum.

I a simplex environment...  I love it!

OT-->Anybody going to play in the 2m sprint tonight?

Recently there were some negative comments about the LMR coax.  I have not
used it before but was curious what problems others may have encountered
while using it.
