Premium Coaxial Cables

You will find the finest coaxial cable available at the RADIO WORKS™. All of our stock is factory fresh because we have shipments directly from the factories every week or so. Nothing sits around and grows old and lossy here. We do not sell seconds or surplus coax. You can count on us for that special antenna project.

RG-8X

RG-8X Premium, 10'-99', per foot $0.40
RG-8X, 100'-1000' $0.35
RG-8X 100 feet with PL-259 connectors + strain relief $46.00

RG-8X Plus

RG-8X Plus, 10'-99' $0.42
RG-8X Plus, 100'-1000' $0.37
(This is my choice for most of my wire antennas and shack applications, including my CAROLINA WINDOM® and my SuperLoop 80™.)
RG-8X is a low loss, low cost, 50-ohm coax that WILL handle 1500 watts. Losses on HF are only slightly higher than RG-213, yet RG-8X is the same size as RG-59 (about 1/4" in diameter).

Combine LOW cost, LOW weight, and LOW loss and you have what amounts to a VERY BEST BUY!
Most RG-8X is made with a type IA jacket. RG-8X Plus uses the Military type IIA, non-contaminating jacket which is preferred by some. Except for the jacket, the specs on this coax are identical with our Premium RG-8X.
Applications

Use with all HF wire antennas. It is suitable for any HF installation including beams. Use on VHF only for short runs of less than 50 feet. due to its flexibility, it makes excellent jumpers and is perfect for mobile installations.

Applications

If you want the very best, this is your choice.

Connectors

PL-259 - Use a UG-176 adapter with all standard types

BNC - Special crimp-types are available

Super 240

HF factory rated at 1500 watts (SSB/CW) on 10 meters. That means it will safely handle that much power and more on the lower bands.
A Low Loss RG-8X
Super 240, Low Loss, RG-8X size coax, 10-99' per foot $0.69
Super 240, Low Loss, RG-8X size coax, 100'-1000' $0.62

This is the coax for you if you need top quality, low loss, double shielded RG-8X size cable.
"I have 5 coax runs leaving my second floor shack. To keep the size of the bundle reasonable while still handling the legal power limit, I chose to use Super 240. Low loss, high power rating, double shielding - it's perfect for the task." ..... Jim, W4THU, owner of the RADIO WORKS.
This Mil-Spec RG-213 has a 95%+ braid and a top-quality, long-life, non-contaminating jacket. Electrical specs are identical to standard RG-213. For a few extra cents, you get the kind of coax others sell for nearly twice the price.

Applications

All RG-8X applications. This coax is ideal lower loss and high power ratings are required. It's also perfect when several coaxial cable are bundled together.

Applications

All RG-213 recommendations apply. This coax has a very long life jacket that I recommend for all permanent HF antenna installations.

It is also suitable at VHF if the run is limited to 100 feet or less. For UHF and VHF DX work, I recommend the coax listed on our "Low Loss Coax" listed below.

ExtraFlex

ExtraFlex 9096IIA, 10'-99' per foot $0.90
ExtraFlex 9096IIA, 100'-500' per foot $0.80

BuryFlex ™

BuryFlex™ 50' increments - 50', 100' 150', etc. per foot $0.85
This is the new International 9096 IIA coax. It is a top-of-the line, flexible 9913-type coax. Construction is excellent with a 19-strand center conductor. It bends as easily as conventional RG-8 or RG-213 and will handle the legal power limit even at UHF frequencies. This is your low cost alternative to other low loss cables. It is highly flexible for rotator loops, etc. and it is TRULY directly buriable due to its Polyethylene (not PVC) outer jacket. The low loss is due to the slight larger (compared with 9913) center conductor; flexible, high tech foam Polyethylene dielectric; and flexible polymer grade of polyethylene jacket.

Recommendations

All SuperCable applications. This coax is a must for crank-up towers and rotatable antennas in any installation where low loss cables are needed.

Attenuation

Per 100 feet @ 144 MHz is 1.3 dB. At 50 MHz it is 0.64 dB.

Attenuation

Per 100 feet @ 200 MHz is 2.9 dB. At 50 MHz it is 1.1 dB.

Connectors

PL-259 - Standard types, Silver/Teflon® and Gold/Teflon® recommended.

N types - Special 9913- style N-connectors are required, see connector section of this catalog.
