      Not good choice for power >10 Watts

          Comments about RadioShack® 50-Ft. RG-58 Coax Cable Assembly:

          Works fine on 146 MHz at 10 watts for 50'. Especially leaky (very modest shielding) on HF (14MHz) at 100 watts, though it will work for troubleshooting. Don't recommend for any type of permanent use over 10 watts.

              Comments about RadioShack® 50-Ft. RG-58 Coax Cable Assembly:

              you only get half the power to your antenna, not much receive, there is no shielding at all in it, not enough grounding to it and just a pure waste of manpower, copper, plastic, and money.

                Works just as good as the RG8U coax

                  They say that RG8U coax is better to use on your base radios. It has the same 50 Ohm and the same 95% shield as does the RG8U coax. And it is a lot easier to run it from your antenna to your radios.

                  I use the cable to connect my Ham Radio to a 6 meter antenna. The cable was cut and was hard to repair because of the small size of the wires. It is good if it does not get cut. If it gets cut, you will probably buy a new cable but that is alright too.

                    I use this coax for my base setup. I like it because it small and fits where I need it to go.
