Thanks Jim. It doesn't have a number on it that I have found, so it may not
be usable for my intentions.
Thanks for the tip... By the way, I still can't see my original post to
this list since I switched to gmail. I could always see it before. I
checked all the settings at mailman and it should be good to go. I probably
have something wrong in my gmail account.
>From the Belden site:
RG-6/U Type 1532A 6.20 Belden 1/.040? CCS GIFPE DBII/90% AL PE .024 75
16.2 -55 to +80 300
The last number in that list is the voltage rating of Belden RG 6 U for
burial type. So if you run a KW that means your voltage is near 265
volts. This is fine provided you have a good match.
What I am saying is that not all RG 6 is as good quality so one must be
careful. I have seen some RG 6 that I wouldn't put more than 25 watts
into because of the construction. This is particularly true of foam
filled. It melts at a lower temperature than PE. Usually the drop
cable used by CATV people is much better.
