LMR400F Great Stuff  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I use 110' of the LMR400F (flexible version) to feed a dual band (2m/440) FM vertical at 60' which is mounted on top of a rotatable HF yagi. A Times N connector on one end and an Amphenol PL259 connector on the other. It is obviously a high quality product that is as easy to work with as any other RG8 style coaxial cable. It works fine at VHF and UHF frequencies at my installation. It appears very similar in construction to Belden 9913F that I use to feed to HF yagi on the same tower.

LMR400-DB direct burial  Time owned: more than 12 months
It is all I use at this QTH.

The "Direct Burial" (DB), has a water-resistant paste or film coating the braid and it DOES keep water out.

The LMR-400DB also has a foil layer along with the braided shield.

I have used it on HF thru UHF for several years with NO problems .

Exellent coax!

great coax!  Time owned: months
This is mostly what I use.

Has the flexibility that Andrew hardline does not have-this is essential when mounting on a tower where the antena has to rotate.

The losses it has are low at the hf frequencies; a more expensive and less lossy cabling could be considered for vhf uhf and microwave.

Has the added benefit of utilizing standard connectors.

Too stiff  Time owned: more than 12 months
Would have been better stranded. The solid center conductor just won't form to the shape to want to keep it at. If the stiffness is not an issue, then this is the way to go. Better than Belden 9913. Not nearly as good as Davis Bury-Flex.
