Excellent quality coax from the gold standard coax cable companyThis is the real deal, which is why you'll pay a little more a buck a foot, but that does include good quality connectors, well soldered on. This is thick, beefy cable. If you've never used genuine LMR-400, you have to plan ahead if you need to bend the cable to get it in the house. You can't bend it more than about 40 degrees before you start damaging the braid. If you're ham and working 2 meters or 440, this will really help keep your signal loss to a minimum. TMS is correct in saying it's better to use and N connector than a PL-259 if you have a long run and need to get that Db of loss back. In real life, hardly any ham radios are delivered with N connectors, and you'll at least as much loss using PL-259 to N connector adapters as you will by sticking with the PL-250 connectors.For you CB'ers, this is a waste of money for you and may actually reduce your signal, depending on the antenna matching system used in the radio. At 27 Mhz, the signal loss using something like TMS LMR-195 is negligible compared to LMR-400, and the 195 is much easier to work with. Just a tip from an old ham who started out as a CB'er. Whatever you do, buy TMR coax. It's a bit more money, but it will hold up for decades compared to the cheap supposed LMR from China that you see on Amazon. 5Sloppy connector - I'm disappointedDisappointed with sloppy connector. Not sure how confident I am in one of the connector ends. If you look at pics the compression ring around one connector seems uneven compared to the smooth edges of the other. Perhaps it is okay but seems sloppy for a well regarded product. I'll put the cable into service and see how the SWR is. The sloppy end will go into the house where it won't face outdoor conditions and the good end will go to antenna. I was really expecting better. Unlikely I'll purchase any cables in the future. 2Great quality cable, strange problem hope it's a freak occurrence!Great mid-priced cable for VHF, UHF, and microwave applications. LMR-400 exhibits extremely low loss at higher frequencies for 50-75' runs, but I'd be looking at a higher spec'd cable like LMR-600 if I needed more length. LMR-400's conductor is solid and thus very stiff, and unsuitable for tight bends, very short jumpers, rotor loops, etc (check out LMR-400UF if you need the same specs with more flexibility). However, I had no problems whatsoever routing this along the baseboards, including a few 90 turns, and tacking the cable down with an insulated staple gun without the staple, the stiff cable would've popped right up.I did have a serious QC problem with the first cable I received. My VSWR suddenly become so bad that my transceiver backed the power down to 10%. Thankfully my modern Icom has the logic to do this, and the radio suffered no damage. I traced the cable to my 2m beam, and when I began to unscrew the shield from the antenna's SO-259, the entire cable fell to the ground with the connector still in place. MPD uses some sort of crimping tool to attach the PL-259 connector to LMR-400 shield. This is NOT the same system they use on other cables (which I own a number of, and have never had a problem with). The PL-259's center pin solder joint failed at the same time that the crimped section broke free, leaving the cable held in place by friction. Not cool.In any case, I received a replacement cable via same-day shipping at no cost. I'm going to chalk up the problem I experienced to a fluke, and keep a careful eye on the MPD LMR-400 cables I have in production. Based on my overall experience with MPD and their products, they're still my cable vendor of choice. 4Poor quality bad pl259 connectorsReally disappointed in this cable. Just received it today to use on a new antenna and while screwing one end to the antenna the cable came out of the connector. I have other mpd digital cables and they are great but the lmr400 cable ends need to be redesigned or attached differently. 1Connector problem on the pre-made cable.Add me to the list of folks with connector problems. I've had this up for about a year and a half - wasn't getting the signal out on 440 MHz that I thought I should - so I put a VNA on it. The connector is a bit loose and if you wiggle it, the SWR changes markedly (like 1.2 to 3.5). I'll be replacing the connector - either the crimp to the shield is bad or the center conductor is badly soldered. Either way, I need to be replacing the connector.It's really not hard to put a connector on properly - and you should expect that it's done properly by the "pros". Fortunately, it's not 50 feet up on a tower.... 1Great cable. Good idea for VHF, a must for UHFI replaced the cable on my brother's marine radio this year with LMR-400. While it's stiff, that really doesn't matter on a boat. I ended up cutting six feet off of the cheap cable that came with his VHF marine antenna. I soldered on a nice, new PL-259 for the remaining length, which will allow him to swap out his antenna more easily in the future and dramatically reduce the cable loss in his transmission line.Cable losses increase with cable length and with frequency. A cable that works fine for CB radio, for example, probably will show significant losses on marine VHF or 2 meter ham frequencies. Cheaper cable not only conducts worse at higher frequencies; it also allows your signal to radiate away before it reaches the antenna, and allows electrical noise in that the tuned antenna would reject. For UHF (70cm/440 MHz) ham frequencies, you are simply not smart to use cheap coax. The losses are relatively large, even at short lengths. Use LMR-400 as much as you can, and a short piece of more flexible RG-8X to your radio.Considering how long coax lasts, and the relatively small difference in price between the cheap stuff and good stuff, it just makes sense to buy LMR-400 even for lower frequency use. Unless you really need flexible cable throughout the run, you can always patch a short piece of RG-X on either end. Don't blame your antenna or radio for poor performance when you cheap out on the cable.When you get this, uncoil it carefully and let it sit *straightened out* overnight at least. Do *not* bend it back and forth repeatedly. It will not "loosen up" by doing that, and you will probably break the centre conductor and ruin your new cable. If it's installed outdoors, use tie wrap to hold it so that the wind doesn't keep endlessly flexing it. You can bend it, but don't continue to bend it. Try taking a metal clothes hanger and bend it back and forth in the same place repeatedly. It will break in about a minute or two. That's the stiff centre conductor on your coaxial cable, only it isn't even that strong. 5Poor workmanship.Poor workmanship with no quality control. Put up new antenna @ 60 ft with no signals heard. Had to disconnect coax at antenna and bring it down to isolate problem. No continuity on inner wire ene to end. Maybe cold solder joint, bad connector or broken inner wire. ?? Would not do business with again as this should have been an easy problem to detect at factory. 1worth the money, but it's stiffVery well-made. LMR-400 is stiff, as it has a solid centre conductor. Uncoil it carefully and leave it laid out straight overnight before you use it. It's probably wise to use right-angle connectors to attach the cable to your radio or tuner, as LMR-400 doesn't "do" tight bends. Even with the insertion loss, a broken or intermittent centre conductor will give you more grief.Beyond some kind of hard-line, LMR-400 is the best and lowest-loss coax out there. For UHF, there's no other sensible choice. The higher the frequency, the greater the loss in coaxial cable.The construction is very good. I couldn't have done it better myself. 5Excellent performance and qualityWe use Times Microwave cables in our company's products, and they are the absolute best. Quality and performance is second to none. MPD Digital's workmanship in assembling these cables is also top notch.So when I started building my ham shack and needed RF cabling, I saw these cable assemblies on Amazon and looked no further. Yes, the cabing is somewhat stiff and you have to be careful with bend radiuses when routing it. That's the compromise you have to make when using a cable with such low dB loss. You will see better performance, especially in the VHF/UHF bands.I'm going to be ordering more..... 5HQ for VHF/UHFHigh quality radio coax for my VHF/UHF rig. I don't think I'd use this expensive a coax on HF but for my purposes (running from the antenna on the chimney into my local radio shack this was perfect. Low loss, low SWR. A little stiff to turn on corners in the attic but this is almost 4/10 of an inch cable so that's to be expected. Give yourself 24" to make a 90 degree turn. I couldn't be happier. The end connections are solid and professionally attached. They could probably be pulled off (think, hanging on your antenna and only the coax is supporting your weight) but have not been anywhere near failure in my set up and I pulled them through pressboard and a very tight hole in a my attic to radio room 2 x 4s. 5
