I have had good luck, except the LMR400 / similar to 9913 is prone to center conductor (copper clad solid aluminum) breaking if it gets too much flexing.  ssb

The only issue I have had is that if you get any moisture between the braid

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!

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.
