We were rehabbing a site and the customer scrapped a few hundred feet of RG-393/U cable in various lengths. Since it did not look like "copper" the customer saw no value in the salvage of the wire and it was not black jacketed so the local ham radio club did not want it. Needless to say I drove home with a car trunk loaded with the stuff. Fantastic cable, tough to work with but my LMR-400 crimp connectors work just fine on it.

Even to this day it is a near infinite resistance from center to shield when testing with a megger.

Almost all of it was for jumpers from the bulkhead entrance panel through the trays and down to the individual racks. This was a big equipment shelter and some of those lengths are 30-50'
