Good and inexpensive  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I ordered a number of RG8X jumpers and a 500 ft roll of RG8X. Prices were very good, service responsive, and there was no problem running legal limit. When I asked for a fast service, Tom went out of his way to ship Fedex same day at a very reasonable price.

Bravo!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've had terrible luck with buying pre-made coax jumpers from various companies over the past few years, including most recently, the so-called "Xperts". Then I saw WQ5J's ad on eHam.net and ordered a few of each size, hoping for the best.

These jumpers seem to be the real deal. The PL-259's are properly soldered and the collars fit tightly on the coax. The cable itself is impressive, with the RG8XFP sheath labeled as being double shielded: foil plus 95% braid! The RG213's have already passed 700W at my station without incident and seem rock solid.

No, the PL-259's didn't fall off during installation. No, half the solder holes on the PL-259's aren't unused. No, there aren't any intermittents or shorts in the connectors.

WQ5J's jumpers simply work as they should. At long last, a supplier of quality coax assemblies.
