I wont lie, it was brand new, but free, so who wouldn't try it haha ! : )

One Run I'll be using for 2 metre, on HF, not used the Eco flex, much advantage over RG213 ?

yea I think I'll go for some more "known" cable

Thanks,

Stu

For 2m you want something with low loss. is this for a colinear antenna? westflex 103 maybe.but you could get better!

HF rg213 or rg58 would be fine.

Hi.
Do you have a dummy load? if so terminate the aerial end of the coax with it and then check the swr, with a dummy load it should be 1:1 regardless of frequency (within the operating frequency range of the dummy load in use) if it's still high then check the coax etc, if it's 1:1 then check the aerial in use.
