Very Good Coax  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have about 300' of this coax in use at my QTH and most has been in use for 3 years with no problems. I use it on HF & VHF/UHF. It to me is the best all around coax to use. You pay a little more but the durability and low loss are worth it. Good going Belden.

So far so good....  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have just installed this belden coax and found it extremely easy to work with and route up to the antenna. This is nice to see with such a low loss coax.

I soldered on my own connectors (Amphenol PL-259) and found no melting or heat problems.

I will report back after the coax has been in service a bit longer.

Great product  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I purchased a 500 ft spool from Rush -- W4QA
Rush Johnson - President of Radio Warehouse ...
My installation required 4 runs up a US Towwer HDX-572MDPL . The flexibility of the 9913F7 is what I was looking for ... The tower is exercised regular. The coax was installed a few months ago and I will review again in the comming months. Also the service I received from Rush and his company was expemlitory.

Go for it!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Have 4 runs of 9913F7 that have been in service for about a year. 2 runs are inside 2" PVC piping that is buried in the ground (150'). 2 runs go up the side of the tower (100'). Have just checked the cables and there has been no measurable degradation on HF, VHF or UHF.

This stuff is easy to install. Uses standard PL259's(unlike some heliax or LMR connectors, is very flexible (unlike some off-brand 9913 cable)and is reasonably priced at HRO, AES, etc. Water in the connectors will not be a problem if you use a good plenty of coax seal to cover the fittings and feedline (unlike some heliax connectors).

Great all-around Coax  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Belden came out with this new version of 9913F about a year ago and it suffers none of the problems of the air dielectric 9913 or the 'similar to Belden' varieties. You can bend this in a 3" radius with no problems -- perfect for tower runs and around rotors. The center conductor is a 7 conductor stranded variety -- and the dielectric is a brand new nitrogen injected foam. Fantastic loss characteristics and a great non-contaminating PVC jacket.

I am using this for HF, VHF, and UHF applications -- especially after finding out from RF Connection that alot of our government agencies are using this coax well into UHF frequencies. (If its good enough for the spies, its good enough for me) As with other Belden cables, the connectors go on very easily, the braid tins well, and it lasts forever.

This is not what I would consider buriable cable -- if you want that, use the LMR stuff or something with a PE jacket and maybe some "goo" in the braid. Or...put it in a conduit. It would probably do fine with direct dirt contact -- but everyone seems to think PE is the way to go for that.
