Re: cross yaqis



Hi Bill,
It is a interesting matter you are putting foreward.I never had such
a problem before, but it seem to me that your outer rubber + other
material is aging and lost the flexibility, may be related to the harsh
climatic conditions.To save the situation,I will suggest you to wrap
around the critical area several turns of  "high fusion tape", sorry if
the denomination is wrong, but it is the tape normally used by electricians
in insulating work of critical HV terminations, where the, melting together,
of the warped around layers is desired. In this way you may get extra
strench
into your cable.
Hope it helps, 73's Nicolau
