Re: 9913F??



I think the issue with (standard) 9913 is not water, but water vapor. Since
you have this *large* space (the air dielectric) inside the coax, if both
ends are not *completely* sealed the changes in air pressure that occur
naturally will cause (damp) air to migrate inside the coax where it will
condense and remain. It just builds up, and builds up.
