Re: LMR-400 vs 9913F?



Allen,
I have had good luck with LMR 400 Its center conductor is a copper clad 
alluminum hence cheeper and lighter. Both use alluminum foil shield covered 
with copper braid, do not play well at 3000 + foot sites, or near salt 
water. The alluminum is sacrisifical with moisture. Andrews is the cable of 
choice for mountain sites, but for your application LMR  400 may  work well, 
if  it properly sealed.

Art,
