Coax (loose)

To connect your radio to your antenna you need a coax lead.

We can supply either loose coax, or a variety of leads made up with plugs on.

All prices are per metre.  You can order any length up to 100m, and for many there is a discount price listed for a full 100m roll.

Slightly thicker than standard coax (7mm), this claims to give a similar loss to thick RG213 (9mm) coax but is much more flexible.

Very popular where you need a long run of cable but need something more flexible than RG213.

Please note that you need to use 7mm coax plugs rather than standard 6mm.

Now available in both 50m and 100m rolls

Sorry 50m rolls now sold out until mid October

RG213 Low Loss

L54

A heavy duty low loss 50 ohm coax.

Ideal for use with homebase antennas and for any long runs of cable.

Considering the thickness of the cable (9mm) it is still relatively flexible.

Westflex W-103

L103

Westflex W-103 low loss airspaced 50 ohm coax.

Popular with some amateurs because of it's low loss, the only disadvantage is that the coax is very stiff and tends to remain in whatever shape it is bent.

Has a single solid copper centre rather than the usual multi-stranded.

Slightly thicker than RG213, and ideally you need to use special 10mm plugs (which are about £6 each!).
