LMR®240UF Type / RG-8X / 218XATC Stranded Conductor Assemblies w/PL-259 Connectors

RG8X size: .240" Low Loss.

Best Grade PL259 connectors on Each End.

Weather-Proof Heat Shrink Tubing (HST) Each End.

  • 30% lower loss than the standard RG8X.
  • Flexible Stranded Center Conductor.
  • 96% TC Braid + bonded 100% Foil Shield.
  • Shield Effectiveness < 90dB. That means that you get virtually no noise interference.
  • Very flexible, light weight, and smaller than RG8 sizes.
  • Perfect for amateur radio: Mobile, dipoles, & portable, condos, and apartment applications.
  • Non-Contaminating-UV Resistant-Direct Burial-Black Jacket.
  • Gas Injected Foam Polyethylene Dielectric VP: 80%

    Our Closed-Cell-GIFP dielectric is a major advantage over standard RG8X: those products use a chemical foam dielectric which causes higher losses, will-not stand-up to heat, and that will cause the center conductor to migrate into the braid, and short-out.

  • Voltage DC: 1500 Volts RMS: 5000 Volts
  • Maximum permissible D.C. voltage level is conservatively 3 times the A.C. level.
  • PP kW: 5.6
  • RoHS Compliant.
  • Overall Diameter: .242"
  • Weight 4#/100ft
  • All cables are fully tested. Hi-Pot® and continuity.

Applications: Great quality cable for HF applications. For very long runs consider LMR400 / RG-8/U for less loss. For VHF or UHF applications use LMR400 Type / RG-8/U for less loss. For high-power transmissions use LMR400 Type / RG-8/U.
