You made a good point that regular CAT5 actually can last quite a while, if someone wanted to use it. And the cheapest if they wanted to use PVC, at $60 a spool/box. But a couple things to note... Shireen outdoor shielded cable is less expensive (or equivellent) in price to regular plenum

But a couple things to note... Shireen outdoor shielded cable is less expensive (or equivellent) in price to regular plenum CAT5. Shireen cable is also almost as easy to work with, as regular CAT5. Shiren cable is thin, and the right diameter to fill up most small hole passthrus (such as

Based on the article it appears they are just looking to lease that spectrum for cash. Sounds fine to me, as it's what the feds have done for years with their spectrum. I bet many states sit on unused or underused spectrum that could utilized for commercial purposes. I prefer unlicensed, but

Thats a good comparison Tom. Couple things I should note, which I thought about after I posted. I live in the Pac North West, not the South West, Arizona Nevada or Texas. I'm not sure blue cat 5 would stand up in outdoor situations there when it is exposed to the hellacious sunlight there. And

How about bundles of cat5's up a tower? I'm needing to run about 12 to 15 cat5's up a leg of a water tower, using clamps standoffs. Does anyone have a recommendation for this? How have you done this before? Bundles of so many routed through a rubber standoff mount? Mark Nash UnwiredWest 78

Thanks Brad. I remember that thread, and I just re-read all the posts that I didn't delete. So, in your experience, you feel it's OK for your equipment to run PoE through a 25-pair cat5 cable? We don't have much during the year here for lightning strikes...at all. Mark Nash UnwiredWest 78

The only problems I have had in 5 years is cable wearing through because it was not tied on properly and power supplies and ends going bad because water dripped into then. I've never seen water hurt a cable, even a cut cable. It only hurts the ends. I have had cables get water in them so I

Hello Mark, We've been running cable like this at several HUB sites for more than 5 years now. We do have lots of lightning and storms here in North Texas and have either been extremely lucky (not likely) or our installation methods have been satisfactory. PoE hasn't been an issue over 25pr
