Hi Steve, 

In the approx 50' length of feedline we used, there 
appeared to be no un-realistic amount of loss in the 
new lmr cable.  As mentioned earlier, sourcing the 
numb receiver was a real head scratcher for a week 
or two. Tx out power and return losss measured just 
peachy, but no cigar on the rx loss.... go figure. 

I don't have the original values anymore... It's 
possible I still have the problematic line segement 
still at the repeater site (well marked as bad). 

Maybe this summer I'll have another look at it. 

1/2 inch hard line is not really that much more and 
there's a glut of feedline around from all the cell 
site swap outs/changes.  

I've not had any problem with the larger LMR lines 
although we don't have a lot of it in service. I 
do have a lot of the rg-58 size LMR 200 in service 
and I like it for inside jumpers in some applications. 
Mostly because I got it free and it's easy to work 
with. But most of the serious applications get rg-214 
mil spec so I can sleep well at night...
