Re: 9913F??



I'd stay away from the 9913 solid conductor.  We used to use this stuff at
work and somehow, despite all attempts at waterproofing, water gets into the
coax without turning any connectors green - it seeps through the jacket
somehow.  If you can get LMR400, or LMR400 flex, get it.  they both have a
foam dielectric and are not susceptible to water getting in them.  If you
get 9913 with an air dielectric, you *will* get water in it no matter what
anyone tells you or what you do to it.
