Chris,

In most areas it must be plenum if it is in a common shaftway between 
floors without firestops. What you will probably need to do is 
transition from plenum to outdoor where it leaves the building. I'm sure 
that's not what you had in mind but if you are under code it may be your 
cheapest way. Just transition at a 66 block that is CAT5 rated.


Otherwise, the plenum cable directly to the equipment outside will last 
you several years without issue. You could also install it inside pvc 
conduit on sleepers off the roof surface to extend life.


Good Luck,

-B-

  Im installing some 120’ runs of 
  cat 5 in building shafts. I also need to take this through a roof 
  penetration and 20’ across the roof to hook up to my radios. I can find 
  exterior cable and riser rated cable, but not one that will serve both 
  needs. Anybody have any idea where I can find such a

You will probably want to use plenum for the entire run.
