• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi guys,

"Is it comparable to 9913 or LMR-400?"

No, you overlooked the fact that it's 3/8" diameter while those are 1/2" so you'll need special connectors. Then again it's semi-rigid line, sort of a cross between hard line and standard coax but with a twist, the outer conductor isn't braid, it rather resembles BX armored cable used for electrical wiring. Nope, this stuff isn't your average scanner cable.

Corrugated cable is the STANDARD of the industry.
LMR-400, LMR-600, etc. is a relative newcomer for those who want to save a few $$.

Yes, all corrugated cable needs connectors specifically designed for it.

Andrew is the big company in the market.

He bought pre-assembled jumper with N connectors already attached.

No need to obtain or install special connectors.

Rigidity and diameter might be an issue depending on how the feedline needs to be routed.

Yes I bought it pre-assembled with connectors and it has an Andrew part number. You can't beat the price, just above $20 delivered for 10 meters.

Thanks for the link to the product sheet and also to everyone else that responded.

This cable is also extremely durable and will last you forever. It's considered more of a "commercial-grade" cable. $20 is a pretty good price, too.
