Worth noting that while DXE does occasionally stock LMR400 (a product by Times Microwave), most of what we buy is "DX-400."  They are both great product, but definitely differ.  The plastic used on the outer jacket is more plasticky on the DX Engineering stuff, slightly rubbery on the Times stuff.

UltraFlex is also a Times Microwave brand, but others have produced equivalents.  I use DX-400 Flex or whatever they call it (braided center conductor), as the real deal is even _more_ expensive.

I've also had great luck with Shireen's knock-off "400."  When I was last looking, it was hard to find in quantities less than a full spool, but it might be a good option for a group buy.

As others have said, .2dB/100' isn't a huge deal for most uses.  Longer runs, consider coax to a 1:9 transformer then 450 ohm window line to a 9:1 on the other end; lower loss than LMR400 and it's cheaper and less of a PITA than hard line. DXE manufacturers a pair of these. They're nearly impossible to find on the site - I'll find the model number, if anyone is interested.

If that part is from the base it might just be the center pin connector for the wire part of the antenna. What model antenna is it?

Re: Best place to get 125' of LM 400?

Lou Giliberto (KD7HCW)
 

I looked and 213 seems to be cheaper than lmr400 ultra flex.

At 30mhz 400 loss is 0.8 and for 213 it's 1.0 both per 100 feet. I'm using 213 for hf and lmr400uf on my scanners and vhf/uhf because it has lower loss at higher frequencies.

I guess I figure within a few hundred feet I'm willing to take the loss and keep the dollars 😊

If you can spare a few bucks I'd get the dx engineering RG213u for hf. The dialectric doesn't soak up water and you can direct bury it.

Make sure you get the Ultra Flex version of LMR400.  Typically P/N is LMR400U or LMR400uf.  You will be glad you did.  Much easier to work with.

You are going to want N Connectors installed on the cable.

Re: Best place to get 125' of LM 400?

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

I will second the suggestion on direct burial coax.  Two of my feedlines are direct burial LMR-400.  The ultraflex stuff is a lot easier to handle but also more expensive. 

For HF work it’s worth considering whether the increased cost of LMR-400 is worth the relatively modest improvement in signal loss even over a 125’ run, over something less expensive like rg8x.

And for sure if you’re running the coax into the air to reach the feedpoint of the antenna, rg8x weighs considerably less than LMR-400 does, that’s for sure.

Re: Best place to get 125' of LM 400?

Hi Howard,

That's a lot of coax!  Going to be expensive...

Make sure you get the Ultra Flex version of LMR400.  Typically P/N is LMR400U or LMR400uf.  You will be glad you did.  Much easier to work with.

You are going to want N Connectors installed on the cable. 

ABR Industries makes really good cable.  You can get that at HRO (Ham Radio Outlet)
