17Jan 23:12 i dont have a 6m amp YET... i was looking at the 150mhz ratings, im going lmr600UF  i think its only twice as bad loss as ldf4-50 but i only need about 25 feet per antenna to connect to the hardline.	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
17Jan 22:56 KF7NN Laszlo, its only good for 4.24KW at 6 meters so may be a problem for you.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:55 KF7NN Laszlo, the LMR 600 is only .5 db per 100 feet loss at 50 Mhz so not bad spec.  The hard part is the N-connectors and installing them on the coax.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:53 rrugated hard-line cables.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:53 KF7NN Laszlo, LMR?standard is a UV Resistant Polyethylene jacketed cable designed for 20-year service outdoor use. Thebendingandhandlingcharacteristicsaresignificantlybetterthan air-dielectric and co	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:52 KF7NN Laszlo, was running an 8877 on 6 meters then.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:51 KF7NN Laszlo, that should be quite a site.  We had a 6 meter antenna back in my youth that arced between the DE and the boom creating a blue flash in the sky at night.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:50 im working on melting my lmr400 at the top of the tower with my new beko	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
17Jan 22:49 i cant say but its made out of the same material lmr400 is. 	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
17Jan 22:48 KF7NN Laszlo, How is the LMR-600 for UV protection?  We have bad UV here in Denver at 5280 ASL.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:44 connectors and install.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:44 KF7NN Laszlo, I may have to go that route.  The Ecoflex is $3 per foot - not bad, the N connectors and putting them on 3 20 foot jumpers is the rest.  Guess that is what you pay for commercial grade 	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:42 jumpers? i was looking at lmr600 and it wasnt too bad like about $1.19 a foot	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
17Jan 22:40 FYI I priced out some Ecoflex 15 jumpers for my new antennas.  Cost more than an antenna. Crazy.	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:40 we could do without any precip for about 3 months, its just a mud pit in th yard	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
17Jan 22:39 Sunny here but snow for Friday night and Saturday.   We need it in Denver but they have good snow in the mountains for skiing	(NO0T/6/QRO Paul CO DM79lr 136.29.27.30)
17Jan 22:38 its ok i guess, snowing right now a little bit	(KF7NN Laszlo VA FM07xs 184.21.45.117)
