I have been using AirCom + since June 1995 as rotor jumpers on 2m and 70cm. 
No problems with it here, some 5400 satellite contacts later......

While you're there, check out their preamps!

Ditto on water! Only again been since 1995, but no problems. The 70' run I 
have is for a dual band vertical on top of my tower. N connectors used were 
Amphenol specifically made for 9913 and Cablewave heat shrink boots and 
Decibel Products Vapor Wrap. I do not use it for rotor jumpers. I think that 
would be asking for trouble due to center conductor support issues.
